I looked over a wall to get a better view of the landscape and spotted this fella.

Nice shot and to red necks from Alabama an unusual breed. I only get to see them on TV or in a magazine. Is that a winter coat or do they keep it all year??

I`m not too sure BigDawg,I think they keep that coat all year round.They always look the same to me :-),I haven`t seen that breed for a number of years.Just goes to show ,It pays to be nosey ,If I hadn`t looked over the wall I would neverhave known they were there.

Thanks

Sure is a good shot - so clear and and a very unusual animal...Do you do much software in preparing to send them to the forum?

A local farmer used to raise these cattle and butcher them. Hands down the best beef I have ever eaten. A very good taste and really lean right off the hoof. Unfortunately he no longer raises them.

Oh, by the way very nice pics.

well at the moment I just run my pics through Photoshop CS on auto levels,sometimes I don`t it just depends on how the pic turns out.I`ve found tips on this site invaluable

http://luminous-landscape.com/tutori...hotoshop.shtml

For the past couple of weeks I`ve done most of my shooting in M mode, learning from my mistakes,and basically just experimenting.I take 1 shot in auto (so that it will be half decent) then switch to M mode and fire off a few with different settings.

Thanks for the replys

TommysDad.

while I was writing this post there was a knock at the door, it was the postman delivering my TCON-17......YES!!!!!

Nice shot, and a good location to find it.

However, I hate to niggle, but it's not an Aberdeen Angus, it's a Highland Cow. They're found all over Scotland, but especially in theNorth & West Highlands. They'd also suit the Lake District & Snowdonia very well indeed.

Here is an image I got from the Aberdeen Angus Society's website....http://www.aberdeen-angus.co.uk/

The region north-east of Perth and south of Aberdeen has a wonderfully fertile coastal strip, where Aberdeen Angus presumably thrive. Life is harder elsewhere in N.Scotland, and the cows need an overcoat.

Good shooting!
