When temperature reaches 23C in October it isn’t usual in my place, but yesterday it happened! For your information it is chilly rain again this morning…
Well, Saturday was a wonderful sunny day that simply demanded of me to take a trip in the countryside, bringing the camera of course. And in autumn even the cows are red hehehe!
I found this creature as she was grazing roadside with several of her relatives enjoying the warm October sun, but I preferred her pose so I excluded the rest…

Indeed, a real autumn cow :) I can imagine how this cow will look like during the Norwegian winter but I don't dare to think at the summer version ...
Yesterday in Belgium we had the warmest 1st of October since 1921. Finally we're enjoying summer weather here. July and August have been terrible.
Best regards, Paul

The cow sure to enjoy the 23C day in the pastor, Pablo.
Wonderful as you taken her on the down slop, green and orange colors in fine contrast to sky aloft - looks as spring, though...
pierrefonds (57563) 2011-10-02 5:39
The trees are framing well the cow. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the cow. the afternoon light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Il n'y a pas que les maisons qui soient rouges en Norvège. Même les vaches revêtent leurs plus belles couleurs.J'aime la pente descendante.
wgreis (8267) 2011-10-02 6:45
Hello Pablo, good morning! Here you "ran" a little of its theme of more open landscapes. In addition to showing the beauty and health of the animal, like you have "closed" the angle of coverage of the topic, emphasizing the details. Big hug and congratulations.

Excellent moment. That cow eating with the contrast of the background is amazing!
prasun984 (5590) 2011-10-02 20:04
very nice diagonally composed shot by the brown tones cow who is eating grasses from the field...
like the play of light in early morning...
nice dof controlled with nice sharpness & color tones...
emka (80034) 2011-10-02 23:48
Who would think that after bad summer the september would be so wonderful? We also enjoy wonderful sunny days, very warm. Haha, amusing view of this golden cow. Beautiful light.
mesutilgim (85500) 2011-10-02 23:54

sacavem (18614) 2011-10-03 7:57
I like the perspective chosen.Good clarity and light management.The sharpness is excellent, I like the subject.I like the green tones in the foreground.
mvdisco (17774) 2011-10-03 9:13
A nice country scene on a warm unsual in your place in october,
in Quebec it rain rain and rain now, maybe at the end of the week the indian summer will start, tree days with 20 celc. and more...Hehehe,..
Excellent light and tone of colors Pablo.
I like the way you have taken this image..
very well done.
Michel have a nice week,
Cricri (107360) 2011-10-03 11:08
Une belle image de la vache aux couleurs qui s'harmonise a celui de l'automne, bon POV et très belle lumière
fabianoleite (9551) 2011-10-03 19:18
The cow was very well placed in the picture, with its strong marked colors and the blurred background. Great rural composition, congratulations!
agulberk (3794) 2011-10-03 20:11
Very nice shooting with perfect perspective and framing.
Colors are warm and wonderful
Excellent composition and presentation
Thanks for Sharing.
danos (87551) 2011-10-04 10:52
the close up view of the cow is fascinationg as with the way that is placed in the image her body looks bigger that the ground.I like the brilliant colours as the excellent light management.
UlfE (14641) 2011-10-04 10:53
I do not if you have many other cow photos in your gallery but with so many farm photos it is logical with a photo of one of the inhabitants of those farms. Its a beautiful and well-composed photo And that the meadow slopes is a also logical since this is Norway. You make really fine use of it in your composition. TFS and have a nice evening!
serp2000 (40400) 2011-10-04 11:15
Hmmm, this is very nice cyclone for the North Europe. We have god +6+9 degreees only.
Good minimalistic photo, splendid colours.
paololg (31448) 2011-10-04 13:47
Ciao dear Pablo,
...but if the cows in autumn are red, in spring are green? :-)))
Pleasant naturalistic image, so well composed, with an interesting contrast between the subject and the BG, which creates a three dimensional effect. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Wednesday!
batalay (35747) 2011-10-04 16:23
The red cow grazing in the hillside — a simple but elegant shot. I like the composition and the quality of the photograph very much, as usual. You have had a mild fall so far. We are getting over a 'seasonably cold spell', mostly around 10°C, but the weatherman has promised 10° warmer weather for the next few days. Then in November, we usually have Indian Summer for a short spell, before we descend into the cold realities of winter.
Hansaphotos (6905) 2011-10-05 0:30
A fine capture of the grazing cow. Makes me think of the old advertising for the chocolate, Freia Melkesjokolade. The well selscted upwards POV includes the sky that provides a fine colour contrast to the autumn-coloured landscape. Very well done:) Have a nice day.
Best regards, Erling

Dobar trenutak u jutarnjim satima sa kravom koja pase na zelenom polju, lepa fotografija.
Dobar tekst, snimka i lepe boje.
Sve je manje krava na poljima, deca ce uskoro u zooloski vrt i u zatvorene stale, da bi videli ovu domacu zivotinju koja im daje mleko koje tako vole.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc sa lepim snom.
Good time in the morning with a cow grazing on a green field, beautiful photos.
A good text, image and beautiful colors.
There are fewer cows in the fields, children will soon zoo in closed barns, to see this domestic animal that gives milk, which they so love.
Pleasant evening and a quiet night with a beautiful dream.
All the best.
La_Tulipe (2798) 2011-10-05 11:21
Une vache dont la robe se marie parfaitement aux couleurs que prend la nature une fois que s'installe l'automne.
Belle prise de vue rapprochée avec l'arrière plan flouté
TopGeo (38204) 2011-10-05 11:29
Hello Pablo! Nice picture and a great color combination! Good summer weather! Excellent composition and presentation
Thanks for Sharing.

- Here too the time is miraculous for the season Pablo, very beautiful warm picture for this cow on the hill, I always wonder why God has not done legs of mountain cows of two different lengths? he, he, he!
All the best.
mauro61 (52623) 2011-10-06 2:04
ben ripresa la scena con la diagonale verde del pendio su cui si trova la mucca .
Luce calda che ben rappresenta la scena,
josepmarin (57829) 2011-10-06 3:18
yes, it is very interesting to see this cow with a few red tonalities, in agreement with the colors of the trees in autumn.
The framing in a good low-angle shot outlines this nice cow on the blue sky, in an image with an a bit blurry background, thanks to a good management of the field depth.
It is a good composition.
shevchenko (19351) 2011-10-06 3:27
Good low angle shot to show a cow eating on the slope, attractive view in a sunny day, full with relaxing feel, thanks for sharing a simply but impressive natural scenery.
Didi (57264) 2011-10-06 5:57
The cow has an interessant dominant position.
Very nice warm colours contrasting with the blue sky
Greetings from Orleans
Silvio1953 (123689) 2011-10-06 8:43
Ciao Pablo, splendid light on lovely cow, excellent clarity and wonderful autumnal colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
rodgerg (55767) 2011-10-06 10:15
Title very well collected for this beautiful shot with a very nice harmony between the colors of the cow and the colors of the vegetation. These colors give too a nice contrast with the blue of the sky. Good balance in the composition.
Have a nice evening,
Waylim (25360) 2011-10-06 22:29
I didn't know that cow also turn color in the authumn:)
The low light certainly make the cow looks more red than usual. The tilt make it looks kind of funny too, as if the cow will slide down to the left :)
Graal (97897) 2011-10-06 23:21
fine title, yes, cow in autumn colours. Simple theme and nice effect. Image well composed. Photo well done.
Have a nice day.
Budapestman (82620) 2011-10-07 1:30
Hi Dear Pablo,
a very lovely portrait with nice composition, the colours and lights are splendid, the title is superb :-)
Tfs! Have a nice day! Kellemes napot kívánok!
PS.Thank you for your kind words to my 1400th post!
Longroute (19396) 2011-10-08 4:16
It's difficult to capture a cow in a original way but you succeeded well thanks to a low pov (which makes the animal more impressive) and creating a diagonal both with the cow and the profile of the hill. But actually it's the smart and vivid colour of its skin which make of this cow an interesting and appealing photographic subject. And of course the fine and intense light contributed too.
A simple but outstanding composition.
clic (15142) 2011-10-08 5:10
Thanks for your kind words Pablo
It has to feed with brakes on that lovely cow wich dorsal slope matches perfectly that of field. Magnificent sun tan too, but did'nt pay attention to overdose that can cause skin cancer!
DjoleEric (0) 2011-10-08 8:18
Nice work with an excellent focus.
Cows that graze in my village is increasingly rare sight.
Some children who live in the village do not know many things about agriculture and the countryside way of life.
danyy (0) 2011-10-08 11:11
une DOF réduite qui donne beaucoup de relief à l'avant plan, des couleurs fortes et naturelles à la fois. Le bleu du ciel ajoute au reposant de la scène.
Mes meilleurs compliments.
s_lush (16134) 2011-10-09 0:56
Such a colorful and sunny scene is very appropriate for the description of this unusually warm October, which now is taking place here, in Ukraine, too. A highly aesthetic composition and beautiful colors!
Kielia (23711) 2011-10-09 7:53
this is a fantastic presentation of a beautiful creature that is so nicely illuminated by the sun. The composition is excellent and the warm colors are wonderful. A great capture!
marcan44 (6259) 2011-10-09 13:29
I like the cow in focus and the background blur.
On the other hand you wanted to highlight the red in autumn, red like the cow.
Even the lawn diagonally makes the really nice POV.
Well done, my compliments!
Have a nice evening
Angshu (55942) 2011-10-12 20:41
The slope creating a neat green triangle makes this attractive. The colour of the cow, brown creates a good contrast & stands out against the blue sky...23 celcius is our winter temperature in Bombay ;-)
maloutim (9637) 2011-10-15 9:56
Well, I know you like photographing the touches of red in the Norwegian countryside ! This makes a nice change from houses !
Very well captured as she is grazing on the slope.
I like the way all the colours have a touch of reddish in them as if it was caused by the reflexion of the cow :-)
Have a nice weekend.
yedirenk (11244) 2011-10-15 11:44
Hi dear Pablo,
yes!!this one is autumn cow with red color tones and red light:))
very nice and funny presentation.a peaceful ambiance.TFS
subhendu_bagchi (25818) 2011-10-18 4:22
this composition is looking simple and the simplicity attracted me towards it. A nice view of this calm place with the red cow. Great shot with perfect light and vibrant colours as ever. Tfs.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-10-18 23:03
La composition et la lumière mettent bien le sujet en valeur.
Une photo d'automne très agréable !
skippy007 (12510) 2011-10-19 21:54
Hello Pablo, The weather has also been fantastic in Italy, ideal for a tourist. Simple but pleasant composition and presentation.
gunbud (34066) 2011-10-20 19:24
I'll bet this casually grazing cow is not complaining about the mild weather as here golden brown coat is so wonderfully seen in the bright autumn sun.
The autumn colors and blue sky make the ideal background for this lovely bucolic scene.
jmdias (56219) 2011-10-30 11:35
the strong group of colors is very nice to see here. good job showing the beauty of a simple rural scene. TFS.
