Description: Four cows follow a path across a small rise to join other cows in a bright green pasture, under a cloudy sky. On the left stands a clump of broadleaf trees, one leaning precariously to the right, just beyond two brown boulders standing in a grassy clearing. On the right a grey rock is embedded in the grass. In the distance one sees a few trees on the far side of the field near the right, water beyond the field on the left, and in the distance, the silhouette of a low mountain ridge. (From a color photograph.)
