Well I didn't expect to be away for that long! Ended up ripping up the study to decorate and in true DIY fashion you never get done what you expect to get done. The computer was a spaghetti of wires for a few days and then I went away to France for a lovely lovely time. But now, like it or not, I'm back.
This is a picture I have wanted to take for some time and luckily for me there were some obliging cows staying next to the house in France, think they were from Germany and they'd booked months ago. Took a few frames and this one seemed to hit the spot, I particularly like the fly on the nose, just a little bit of detail that I was certainly not aware of at the time...not sure if the cow was aware of it either for that matter. Anyway, a big thanks to Cow 4250 and I hope we didn't make too much noise and you enjoyed the rest of your holiday... ;)
As regards Challenge III, hmmmmm...seemed to stump a lot of you. I can either move on to theme IV or I can extend the time and relax the challenge brief. I'll leave this question here for a couple of days and see what you feel. Really appreciate Aksel, Jose-Angel and Frank for entering so far, I guess I know who the top 3 are!
Take care and have a nice weekend.
p.s. I will reply to the comments left whilst I was away, much appreciated.
