I set out very early one morning to take photographs of some interesting and gnarled oaks, not too distant from where I live (perhaps twenty minutes). Part of what helps add interest to these oaks is that here are cows in the same fields, and they keep the grasses cut down so that the oaks stand out nicely.
With a crisp, clear light and a gentle ground fog, the cows that helped to shape the landscape, in some cases became the more interesting subject, and I began to photograph them. They were curious and obliging subjects.
I watched and photographed these ladies for a good stretch of time as they enjoyed their breakfast and the morning sun. I was happy to have found them among the oaks I sought.
Wonderful photos, as always.
Cows are one of my favorite subjects… perhaps because there are no giraffes around for me to capture. Love the misty effect, the oak trees and also of a cow trying to see things from your point of view.
Love these! The same sort of subjects I love to photograph. Nicely done.
It’s funny how cows and horses tend to pose for people like that, like they’re used to it. It’s great that you were able to capture the fog, shadow and light like this.
Beautiful morning scene captured just perfectly. My favorite was the first image, with your field greeter coming to say hello..
Loved the photos and they reminded me of the California Cheese commercials.
