Cow's Lips In The Hills Echo Through The Chasms Of My Mind

This breed of cow was grandfathered into central AZ long ago.

What most people don't know is, the dark peaks in the background were here
much longer than the cow. They are ancient volcanoes of basalt, and their
ash and bombs have left a lasting impression on this area.

To the far left rises Hackberry Mountain, and to the right are Towel Peaks.

The cow didn't say much, but resembled a creature taken off the cover
of Pink Floyd's fourth album, the haunting 1970's "Atom Heart Mother."

Wasn't the Floyd's black and white?

Re: Colors

The original cow that appeared on
Floyd's album
was an entirely different
breed and color of cow altogether.

The concept behind placing a cow on a Pink
Floyd album was "utterly brilliant," and the
cow pictured HERE will never come close to
reaching the stardom and popularity the
Floyd's cow has received.

But, when I'm alone in the wilderness and
suddenly see a lone cow, my mind goes back
to a much simpler and carefree time. A time
when cows were placed on album covers.

After running into thousands of cows since
my arrival to Arizona in 1992, this is the
first cow I have submitted to SP. If anybody
is "utterly offended" by this cow, then I
will (of course) remove it from SP.

Re: Colors

Take a look at this pic and my comment, Larry :-)
As to PF, I got my first vinyl record (The Dark Side) from an aunt who lived in Canada (at that time they were not available in the stores here; later they cost around the weekly wage)

Re: Colors

I've always been amused by cows, particularly
the way they look at you. It's (as though)
they're looking "through" you; as if they're
seeing something that you cannot see.

I haven't viewed the latest (monetary) prices
of PF albums, but I'm assuming their price
is "out of this world."

Matter of fact it's all dark."
