Highland Cattle on Kirkstone Pass

This is the second and last of my highland cattle photos that I want to share with you from Kirkstone Pass. There was very strong directional light coming from the left side of the beast; this gives a unique effect on the fur which I had never seen photographed before. I am not sure if I like the strong contrast of light and dark areas on the animal, but it certainly brings out all the lovely textures and combined with the muted background works well. The composition also works, although with a longer lens it would have been nice to get a close up portrait of just the cow’s face.
