Sky Watch: Bovine Sunset



Never mind telling me to get out of the way because you're trying to photograph a sunset - where's my other leg gone?

This photo was taken from Back Lane, near Hartshead Pike, with Winter Hill, more than 20 miles away, visible in the distance.

Sky Watch is the regular Friday feature on this photo blog. It will link with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!

  11. Wow, that cow is almost all white with a few patches of black! Reminds me of the Gateway computer box.

  12. You might well ask how I got him to stand still, Paul! To get him as a silhouette against the sky I had to crouch down, and every time I crouched down he walked towards me to investigate! I had to keep walking away and coming back when he'd lost interest!

  13. Interesing where you have centered the sun, or is it a reflection? Nice three legged steer, is that a new breed?
