    You've been spotted! The near silhouette works very well I think, as does the framing. I like the layers in the background too.

    Thank you! These Highlanders are rather peaceful, I think. Or blind, with all those hairs in front of their eyes. Whatever reason, he (?) did not attack....

    Fun shot. The hair in front of the eyes is called the dossan. Now you know :)

    I had a definite reaction to this photo when I first saw it. It all seems to work together - the light, or lack thereof, the stance of the bull, the dark clouds, all of it setting a special mood.

    Rob, John, thank you! Dossan.... even if you google it it's hard to find. But the combination dossan+ cow or dossan+cattle gives the expected result indeed. So, thank you for a new word (for me, that is)

    I learned it at the annual Highland Show in Edinburgh. Great place to hang out. I learn something every year.

    I find it looking so natural, it's as if I am there. That's how I see it, especially as I don't have that dossan anymore.
    I also recall that they are really easy going cattle. Lovely animals really. Their meat is, now there I went and spoiled it all:eek:
