During my trip to Point Reyes a week ago, I drove by many farms along the way but the road was very narrow and due to the high traffic I could not manage to make very many stops to take pictures. So, I picked this one out of half dozen simply because it reminded me of the cover ofPink Floyd's Atom HeartMother album!

Interesting shot. The backlighting detracts a bit from the image.

I am not a fan of Pink Floyd so I am not familiar with that album. However, it is a good picture of a cow. It would better if you had used flash. Anytime you have strong shadows in the foreground, it is good to use flash, even on a sunny day. An alternative to using flash would be a reflector of some sort. A large piece of white posterboard or something similar could be used to reflect light toward the subject. However, with a subject this large, using a reflector might not be practical.

Thanks again for you comments, Selvin and Cal. You're absolutely right, Cal. I should have used fill flash. It just did not occurred to me (I'm not a flash fan at all). I need to be more alert in situations where light can be a problem and at least take a shot or two with flash on. Next time!
