This guy grabbed my attention as I was walking down in the lee of Start Point peninsula to my selected SIJ shoot spot for day 05. He's only about 2 metres away since I'm using my appointed SIJ lens, a Voigtlander 12mm, f/5.6
This is a more normal street scene for me than you city slickers
Heather, I based my sexing on the depth of the neck when he? had moved up a little and turned. It seems a little less dark in this shot than what I saw with my naked eye, so I was thinking a Ruby Red (North Devon), but it looks more like a South Devon there (it had rained heavy overnight, so its coat was damp). The farmer has also got Aberdeen Angus and Belted Galloway, as you can see the grazing is rough. I saw his bull later, but he was camera shy and I thought Ruby Red.
Belties are striking, aren't they? We played a practical joke on someone who was slightly the worse for wear and told him they were pandas. Fun times.
Looks like a suckler from your picture, also the combination of time of year and field type. She looks a sweetie. I had a Simmental cow with a face like that, she was a contrary beast. Wouldn't be pushed anywhere, but would follow you quite happily. She had a bit of a thing for sugar beet.
Your pedantically, with apologies for previously spelling your name wrong,
Convinced our daughter to come for a nice blustery cold walk with me and our dog. I chose to try this in a high contrast B&W for the Single in January...but there's something about color that I like better.
Whenever I go outside for a walk, I always feel better.
