Curbar Cow

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.
