A very cold but beautiful morning in the village Aird of Sleat on the Isle of Skye. This colorful view was definitely worth the frozen body parts.
Aird of Sleat (Scottish Gaelic: Ŕird Shlčite) is a village on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. It is situated at the southern end of the Sleat peninsula, 5 km south-east of Ardvasar and Armadale, at the end of a minor road. Lying 4 kilometres from Point of Sleat, it is the southernmost settlement on Skye.

Welcome back on this photographic site.
The cold hues of the shot are in accordance with the scene; and the long fur of the cow, and the moon crescent reinforce the idea.

Hello Peter - This is a wonderfully atmospheric shot and your light management is good. Just enough detail in the cow with lovely little highlights around the ear and flank. The crescent moon and soft colours of the sky and sea are very attractive. I may have placed the cow slightly off-centre for a more dynamic composition but a fine, evocative shot. Warm regards and welcome back. Rosemary

For the composition , maybe the cow is too much in the center, but I like this shot.
Great depth and fantastic colors.
The moon is a nice detail in your composition.

Hi Peter. What a lovely range of colours that create a harmonious palette under a soft light. the morning stillness is palpable. The moon adds a touch of enchantment to this special scene. Best wishes. Klaudio.

A picture with nice colors and good composition.
The Moon (right in the picture) is a nice extra.

To be honest, it makes me smile. A romantic sunrise and this prosaic cow :)))
I like the idea and your capture, well seen

This is very evocative image and a wonderful representation of life in winter on Skye. The colours are magical. The inclusion of the small moon is very nice. The cow is perhaps just a little too central in the frame - nevertheless I think that this is a first class image.
Kind regards, Ann
