Wandering out of the side of the frame. That's against the rules you know... Wink
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.

Great stuff.

Thanks Very Much Alan, very kind indeed.
I'm sure Bill won't mind. TongueBlushTongue

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-breakingGrin
In other words, superb composition.

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.

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. Smile I do like the house nestling in the bottom right. All in all a great scene and so well composed!

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.
