Rusty, Tufty and Friend

    Newer Older

    DALWHINNIE, SCOTLAND, UNITED KINGDOM -- While photographing Rusty and Tufty, the two amiable Highland cattle who reside in Dalwhinnie, Scotlant this nice young man came into my viewfinder and proceeded to feed the cattle a loaf of bread. Best example of the benefits of somebody walking in front of my camera that I have ever seen. Shot for our National Geographic Traveler story on Whisky Country. You can see more at my web site

      This is sooo cool! Besides being beautifully captured and composed, it is so fascinating to see these beautiful and unique ancient looking cattle in a country setting with this unique looking punk rocker who looks so out of place, but is being so kind. Beautiful!

      And I thought he was reading them a poem from one of his punk rock songs.

      From all walks of life we are taught a lesson that seems to move us to truly open up and experience the world again. A smile on our face, tears in our eyes, pride in our hearts, or a sense of peace and wonderment when we see something "so different, but so right at the moment." This picture is one of those "Life's artwork"

      When ever I see a photo of these High Land cattle I recall a story from my grandfather.
      A couple hundred years back +or- a McLaughlin wandered into our family DNA.
      He came down from the Scottish High Lands and found a lovely Swedish girl.
      The rest is history, which is documented in our family Genealogy reports.
      In the latter 60's after returning from the military I let my hair grow long.
      My Grandfather would say my long hair and horns were just my Scottish blood
      coming to light .;-)
