This may look like grasslands, but it's a horse carefully positioned and beautifully photographed by Lee Diegaard, part of her Equuleus series. Below: Copper Valley.
Horse, land and sky.
The horse watches the horizon. His body activates the landscape. He takes the long view: the movements of sun and stars, the change of seasons, the grass as it grows.

There are plenty of productive ways to spend time while stuck indoors.
