Award Shortlist   

A fine pair

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.
Thanks also to Badgerfred for taking the time to award one of his UA again really appreciated.

A trip out with Ade Mcfade in Feb of last year found this small herd of Highland cattle on the moors. Had to stop and get a few images but it was certainly a little windy and cold too.

Thanks for looking

Outstanding image with lovely light and detail in the coat. The head angle and slight out of focus softness from your apature selection on the second cow, are perfect for this composition.
