This shot is taken in the Eden Valley near my home, a view towards Cross Fell in the distance the highest point of the Pennines at 2,930 feet. Was down at Long Meg stone circle and heading home across the fields, thought that with the cows it made quite a nice image. Shall post an image of Long Meg and her Daughters another day, the third largest stone circle in England.

That's my sort of gate (non functional but decoratve in a rustic sort of fashion). Love the cows too. Altogether a very pleasing, warm image.

A great composition John and for me the cows definately add to the shot. As a matter of interest are the black areas above and below meant to be there? For me they are very distracting.
Many thanks for your comment on Bramshill, as always very welcome. I have just added another shot which I would welcome your thoughts on.

I'm a sucker for a mossy farm fence & an open gate.
That this image is so well framed and that the eye-leading gate is also broken and directing right up to those gorgeous cows on the horizon, makes this another very appealing image to me.
"Nice capture"
