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.
