Ruminating

Saturday 20th June 2020, 1.30pm (day 3,222)

Cragg Vale cows, 20/6/20

One of those days where I pointed my camera a lot at nice things, but didn’t manage to come up with many photos that I liked. But these cows will do — they look suitably ruminative and peaceful, a state of mind I am trying to occupy at the moment, even if mostly, I am failing.

Cattle truck

Tuesday 4th October 2016, 8.20am (day 1,867)

Cattle truck, 4/10/16

11 years of using the Calderdale line, and one learns which services have CTS (Cattle Truck Status) and which are safer. I will never aim to catch the 1726 from Manchester, for example. It just ain’t worth it. The 0742 from Hebden (depicted here just about on its arrival to Manchester) is usually not so bad but today, for some reason, it suffered from a massive case of CTS.

Why monochrome again? Because it hides a multitude of white balance sins.

Happy Moo Year

Friday 1st January 2016, 11.35am (day 1,590)

Cow above Hebden, 1/1/16

The first morning of 2016 was a rather chilly and grey one but it was still good to drag the family up a nearby hill and then buy them a pub lunch as compensation. Pic taken on the way round; the cow virtually demanding that I work on its close-ups.

Cow’s head

Saturday 14th February 2015, 12.20pm (day 1,269)

Cow's head, 14/2/15

As captured in Leeds’ Meanwood Valley Urban Farm, which is why I could get close enough to this beast, for long enough, to be able to get the shot. But semi-tame animals can still look good, if I had eyelashes like that I’d pull big style.

The cows know

The cows know, 15/10/14

I think number 5 did it. She’s trying to look inconspicuous, but I’m telling you, she’s the one.

On the summit of Gummer’s How

Saturday 23rd August 2014, 2.25pm (day 1,094)

Gummer's How summit, 23/8/14

A walk in the Lakes. Specifically, around the southern tip of Windermere. Generally a very nice day except for about 90 minutes of clouds and squally drizzle around lunchtime; at the point this photo was taken things were mostly cleared up. This is the summit of Gummer’s How, a small peak at the end of the lake, and famous (rightly) for its view. These Luing cattle live permanently on the fell and maintain the flora, so we are informed by the noticeboard at the point where the path leaves the road, anyway.
