    Applecross, Scotland.

    We successfully drove the herd from the hills and we were able then to isolate in the pen the calves who needed tagging. Here you see our friend Trish climbing into the pen where she will tag a calf's ear. The calf's don't like it by the way, and it takes two or three human beings to tag the ear. Small though they may be, the calves are nonetheless strong and quick when they want out of the way.

    Cracking shot, amazing colours, and a good story to go with it. I wouldn't like to be tagged either, so I'm not surprised at the calves' reaction. Of course, we humans get tagged all the time. We're just more insidious about it.

    A great scene Brian and always good to observe real working situations like this to learn a lot about a world that goes on often without note.

    I don't know, these bloody hoodlums come over here on holiday and go around spray painting their tags on anything they can find! They should be hor.... Oh, I see. As in tagging. In that case what a wonderful shot Brian. Again I love the effect that cross processing has had on both the intensity of the image and the sky in particular. Super stuff. :)

    I love the grain in that sky and the mountains.
