Maris, a really good one.

Genuine photographic clouds that are placing the tree line in a perfect light...

Meanwhile the stock are grazing the lower parts of the land, as well as being in the water; presumably for a deep drink. :mrgreen:

Hot day?

Yes Mick, it was high summer. Two things cows like on a hot day are shade and water. The shade is at the top of the ridge and there are some cows up there. The water is a long walk downhill. The farmer is smart by keeping both pleasures far apart so the cows don't congregate and make a trampled patch leading to dust in the dry, mud in the wet.

Nice one Maris. There's a Robert Adams like this with cows small in the frame. I think I like yours just as much.

Thanks RoganJosh. It's an honour being compared to the great Robert Adams. I think Adam's cow pictures are from his book Prairie featuring elegantly composed American scenes of country emptiness. The cows are 17 or 18 pictures in from the beginning of that book; I think.

Yeah thats the book Maris. I almost bought it last year but instead opted for Candlestick Point by Lewis Baltz.
