If ever an animal could love this weather, the Highland Cow is that said one.
A snap from walking Missy yesterday aftenoon in the snow.

V2 is an arty shot of a birch wood in the blizzard, love to know your thoughts on it.

Many thanks to everyone for the great response to the Stag upload and Sylvia (Teocali) for the User Award.

Please Pete I am very sorry and apologies again, how about letting me have my messages back Smile

Superb little creature Richard. I should think this just about perfect weather for him. Prefer V1 but V2 is a lovely variation or the weather and is very effective.

A fine shot of this magnificent beast bravely battling the elements. V2 works well as it highlights the blizzard like conditions so well

A superb winter shot of the Highland cow Richard.
V2 I also like very much but I would have cropped at the base of the trees in the center of the image and maybe a little more contrast to bring out the trees more.

An absolutely stunning capture, Richard. Looks like a fine quality water colour, perfect for the wall. The arty version is great too - some useful advice from Kev (above), but still a very original piece of artwork.
Hope you get your messaging service back soon.
