Wide open spaces

The novelty of these wide open, tree-free spaces is not wearing off yet, so please bear with me. 
I can't help myself from shooting the new views. 

I tried to take some before-and-after-the-Hydro-Ax shots, but I was driving myself nuts 
trying to line up trees and focal lengths and latitudes and altitudes. 
Screw it, I said. I'll just take a few pretty pictures.

  4. Now those sneaky pronghorn will not be able to sneak up on the boys and Lucy. How many acres do you have, Linda?

  7. I felt that way when we had our pasture cleared of the same cedars/junipers. Suddenly we had so much more land!

  14. I never get tired of getting pictures of the doin's at the 7MSN so fire away! I can see a lot of trees around though -- are those off your property? And what's your plan about the cholla? Not that I'm nosy or anything!!! The open space is gorgeous.

  15. okay, I still want a before picture comparison. You know I'm your demanding fan.

    So how did they decide which trees to leave? is there a # per acre? Cuz it looks like there are still several and I don't quite understand the logic.

    And does Lucy have a grass belly or are you just using one of those cameras that make one look fat?

    I hate those cameras. :)

  17. come on, tell the truth, did you stage that last photo? I feel pretty sure that you posed each one and that they stayed that way for you b/c they are so obedient :)

    great shots as always, and as long as you aren't tired of taking pictures, we aren't tired of looking at them; b/c frankly the view out my suburban window ain't much to look at!
