…many of you will be used to Swiss cows climbing mountains, well on Skye the Coos do it too. Blaven forming the backdrop.
Wild beef !!! Dougie.
Wandering out of the side of the frame. That's against the rules you know...
The little house bottom right looks surprised.
Lovely balance between the two.
She's not wandering Moira she has purpose in her stride.
Dougie that's a Belter. Do they fit them with crampons in the Winter?
It was a toss up btwn you and Bill for the UA, but he got mine recently, so that tipped the scales.
Another top notch image
Thanks Very Much Alan, very kind indeed.
I'm sure Bill won't mind.
The beast is climbing of its own accord, in a bid for Scottish Bovine Independence, rather than (as in France, Switzerland etc) being shifted up to higher pastures (transhumance).
I love the rule-breaking
In other words, superb composition.
An opportunity well taken Dougie.
You know I have not been to Skye Dougie,
but believe it or not I have been to Switzerland.
A beautiful country but I fear the Swiss folk were a dour bunch and lacked the Scottish humour.
I did see a few cows however,but I never did see that Swiss Milkmaid !!
A fine shot here.
A good arrangement Dougie and I hope you didn't have to wait too long until i that coo got between those two trees.
Well worked opportunity here Dougie
Lovely image, Dougie with my favourite Scottish mountain as a backdrop. Last time I went up the river was almost dry so after stomping through the heather, climbing fences and getting to the top, I returned empty handed but with a light heart.
Damn! Bill has used 'my' word. I was going to write about transhumance, oh well, another time.
The moo does seem determined, as if putting as much distance as possible between itself and the house...perhaps it deposited 'a present' there?
Are you sure the coo is kosher - it's not the Highland variety. I do like the house nestling in the bottom right. All in all a great scene and so well composed!
Like the composition Dougie
and rules in photography are there to be varied
and played around with
If only the cow was a stag.
Now... are you pleased? Knowing that I'm homesick? Look at that wee cottage down there.... And Bla Bhen looming over it. Can anyone ask for more? And a wee coo to answer the call... Ah... aye.
Excellent picture, perfect in every sense.
Uh.... love it! Had to have another view.
Love it !
Clever composition, ignoring 'rules'.
Cracking shot !!......I never fail to be 'lifted' by that Blaven outline !!!!!!!!!
I love the composition and format Dougie; wonderful image!
