...taken this afternoon at the North end of Loch Lomond, Scotland. Bitterly cold despite the wonderfully warm light, mistaken for a farmer yet again by the cattle, eager for winter feed.

***Wishing you "All a very Happy Christmas", take care out there.

A superb up to the date shot, Dougie: the light on the far shore, it's reflection and the silhouetted trees all add up to such a beautiful image.
Merry Christmas to you...hope you have a lovely day tomorrow.

Laughed at the idea of you being mistaken for a farmer Smile Looks as though it paid off here Smile

Lovely colours, Dougie, and hope you have a really good Christmas.

Another great shot Dougie, with lovely warm (Autumn ?) tones !....I reckon it's your hat thats attracting the cows !....I had a similar experience on a Pembrokeshire coast-path....walking past a herd of cows, the one decided to stamp it's feet at me !!, but when I took my hat off, it stopped ?, only to repeat the behaviour when I put it back on !....I didn't hang around too long, the bugger was bigger than me, & could run faster.....made my wife laugh though !! Merry Christmas...

It's a bloody good job the bull didn't mistake you for a cow.
Happy Christmas Dougie and here's wishing you everything you would wish yourself. Take care my fried and keep producing the goods as good as this one.

A fine capture Dougie, do like the autumn winter tones. The cows certainly look very expectant.
Have a good Christmas and all the best for 2011.

A great composition, the cottage on the other side of the water, the reflection, the trees and coos... wonderful!
