Grazing

Just like the cattle this blog needs constantly fed, and I’m doing a poor job of that lately. My apologies for the lack of new content the past month. This time of winter is my slow time for photography. A slow time for going out and shooting, even though it can be an incredible time for beautiful images, but a…

Rustling up some photos

From the city shot of my last post to more rural things. I see lots of cattle almost every day during¬†my work travels. An almost constant subject on my blog and I’m afraid I have to go there again! ūüôā Trying to get unique and interesting photos of cattle that aren’t mine, during the heat of the day is always…
