This is a kind of photo that is hard to get if you travel by "taxi brousse", like I did. I have to say I envy you a bit for all these rural photos you have posted from Togo and Benin. This is a nice view where the heat of the day is obvious from the behaviour of the cattle, the almost non-existent shadows (except the shade of the tree) and the steel-grey sky.

Hi Gerrit, A great daily life photo, I really like the way the cattle are looking at the camera & the men look like they have their work cut out to keep them together, I would not like to work with cattle like that as their horns look a little to dangerous for me, kind regards Wilson.

Boa tarde Gerrit
A rural scene very interesting. The horns are very sharps. Very good capture.

Beide personen zijn moeilijk te onderscheiden tussen het vee.
De rijkldom van deze mensen is hun vee, en hier zien we vee dat niets tekort heeft.
Mooi dagelijks leven beeld van de mensen in een Afrikaans land.
Mooi gepresenteerd. Bedankt.
Prettige dag verder,

A fine composition of this rustic daily life scene. The shot is well composed with the tree on the right and the framing offered by the vibrant red earth track. Light, colours and sharpness are all good features. It is nice to see that the cattle seem to be well nourished and looked after.

The cowboy and especially the girl looks nice indeed, but the caws with such long horns look even more impressive. Excellent picture of Togolese daily life, composed and taken very skillfully!.

Good composition Africa typical in this area where animals look for the tree shadows.

Nice countryside scene, with warm colours reflecting the warm weather of the place. The mango tree anchors the frame on the right side well.

Prachtige landelijke scène met deze koeien en hun herders en let niet te verdwalen. Dit ras van koeien lijken erg klein in vergelijking met Europa.
Een uitstekende samenstelling met een zeer goede definitie en natuurlijke kleuren.
De beste wensen,

Hi Gerrit. I suppose romance blossoms even in the heat of the day. Looks as if has dropped in on his bike for a chat. Nice everyday scene with natural colours, lovely light and interesting subjects. Regards. Klaudio.
