I took this picture early in the morning as the sun was rising and the mist in the valley was still hanging around.This beastie was inquisitive but friendly, and just wanted to see who was invading his territory.

complimenti! Una bellissima foto sia per come è stata composta che per il bellissimo soggetto.
La foschie e il sole convivono per dare un effetto scenico molto bello.
Splendidi anche i colori.
Ciao e buona domenica

This is a very effective photograph, and I like the title!! The backlighting works very well, and the steep frosty hillside beyond is a perfect backdrop. I was going to say I'm surprised that you've had frost in Devon this Winter already, and then I noticed the date the image was made! Good work.

A fine title and a fine picture but I'm afraid I'm just reminded of that wonderful piece of poetry:
"On yonder hill there stood a coo.
It must hae gone, it's no' there noo."
Sorry about that.
But your cow is certainly here - and looking none too pleased about your presence either. I hope that there was a fence between her and you because even cows can be a bit frisky and bad tempered at times - not just bulls.
Of course, this cow is not really the "star of the show" here - that is the gorgeous light and the way it cascades on the grassland and penetrates the lovely mist lying before the distant hillside and trees. And the whole scene just tells of a beautiful day to come: I'm sure that once the sun cleared the mist, this was indeed a lovely day.
Very well done you for getting out and about early in the day to catch this lovely light. You have produced a wonderful photograph with gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and clarity.

A very apt title and a lovely composition to accompany it. I like the composition and framing a lot, but what I particularly like is that most beautiful light and the misty atmosphere beyond. Lovely natural colours and excellent sharpness. One of your best ever in my opinion.

The fog adds mood, mystery and atmosphere. Good sharpness and excellent fg graphism of dark tones against lighter. Good shadow detail and well managed lighting with the cow perfectly positioned over the vertical 1/3 axis. Tfs!

Sunset and sunrise are always the most beautiful moments of the day.
Technical a very well picture with the cows as visitors in the meadow.
Always very dangerous when a bull also is present in the meadow.
Also the colours are absolutely attractive.
Excellent perspective and depth picture.
Nice composition and lovely captured.
Very well done, TFS.
