Wow - that must have been some rain to flatten the grass like that! Super capture.

@Marie LC: Ah - Marie - que l'herbe est très humide et le sol a des bâtons et le poids de ciment.

@peter: I was driving along this road and the scene just jumped at me as I cruised by. I had to drive a distance to find a place to turn around and then an even more difficult time finding a place to pull off and park. Iactually had to hike some distance despite the fact that I would shoot with the tripod on the pavement. The mud is unbelievable here when it gets wet. Slick and enormously heavy.
