Curbar Cow

    Newer Older

    Longhorn cattle roam freely over Baslow Edge. As anyone who engages in wide angle photography knows, especially those that use a lens as extreme as the Sigma 10-20mm, the lens pushes the foreground far back. To get this shot I had to slowly edge forward towards the cow in the hope that I wouldn't scare it off (or worse enrage it into goring me). Fortunately, they seemed pretty relaxed and allowed me to get really close.

      Love the fact that you did this with a wide angle. The wrong lens for the job (normally speaking) and a great result.

      Great shot, seen on the F Blog, and we saw some of these in 2004 on the Isle of Skye.

      I love the fact that the whole image looks like it is moving except from the animal that is the only element looking calm in the landscape.

      What an amazing shot! You have managed to capture stillness on the ground and motion in the atmosphere/surroundings. Your colours are spot on; how I wish I was there!
      Kindest regards
