Happy Moo Year ...

By sut68      
Happy New Year everyone ... and all the very best to you and your families. Hopefully it'll be another great year here on EPZ too!!! All the best to the team and EPZ towers and all the mods who do a sterling job here also.

This was taken on a mildly disappointing shoot [weatherwise] with Mssrs. West and LeVers on Sunday, the weather and light didn't really play ball the way the weather man said ... ho, hum!!!

Before the light decided to break I wandered off to shoot thes magnificent creatures just grazing on the heathland nearby. Just loved this creature, especially the way that he/she looks like they're sticking their tongue out at me as if to say sod off [or similar]. Thought it deserved the pano format.

Anyway, need headache tablets now and plenty of water. Hope you all had a great night and an even better year than the last one.

Cheers for looking in,

Cool fellow

This is a very tidy wee highland coo in comparison with some I saw the other day on Lewis, a tangled ball of red hair is more like the thing, and that's only me when I get out of bed.

All the very best for 2008 my friend, good health and happiness,

Just found this shot Paul by looking in the HC gallery.
All the best and well done on the HC....note to self for 2008 must get that lens out more if this is what it can do.
Although its not just the lens maybe if I could work the camera a bit better it might help Wink
