Highland Cattle #2



Went back to the place, and luckily they still wandered along on the field 20km from where I live.

This is gorgeous. Just came back from a trip to Scotland and only managed to spot a couple. Clearly have to go back and search a little harder!

Behind The Lens

Location
From a field far away from city life - nearest town about 10km away
Time
Late afternoon. Perfect time for best light. Early morning is a no-go for me :-D
Lighting
Flash is a stranger to me. I try to capture in best lightning as possible. If not possible, I try to edit it better.
Equipment
Nikon D750. The Nikon AF-S 80–400mm was used (now sold) - easier when dealing with animals.
Inspiration
Always had a crush on these animals. Will get back when I have cash for a new lens!
Editing
As always - Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro - Photoshop is a stranger to me.
In my camera bag
As mentioned, I sold my 80-400. Only have my Tamron 24-70MM and the Nikon D750
Feedback
A lens that are minimum 200mm is a good thing. Be mobile, so no tripod. Early morning or late afternoon gives the best light.
