Re my morning skyline, No tweaking in Photoshop or similar, this was straight from the camera, However, the camera is set on 5 for contrast and 3 for sharpness. In addition to that, I lowered the exposure two stops to squeeze the light out. The images ere about 8am one Sunday morning early in January.
I love Herefords, they are so clean and their markings are very attractive. I lived on a farm as a kid and we had a small herd of herefords for vealers, plus in the house paddock we had an Illawarra Shorthorn, a Jersey and a Guernsey.
I like Herefords too, their colour is so heart warming. The herds west of the mountains seem to be more Angus.
Reminds me of a time I was photographing Herefords in Wyoming... I was perched on the fence, no humans about, and heard a sound behind me. When I turned around there was a huge horned bull staring at me! I couldn't decide what I should do ... jump in with the cows, or hope if I didn't move he would lose interest and leave. I held my breath as long as I could, then as I loudly exhaled, the sound scared Mr. Bull and he took off running. Wow! Was I ever relieved!Hope your bovine shoot went better than mine -:))
Chuck, these heifers are extremely placid. They'll follow you when you walk through the paddock – such curious animals – but they’re no threat. The bulls, on the other hand, I'd trust as far as I could throw them...
