My father has been farming in County Down for many years, and is thinking of retiring soon, so it’s time for the blog to celebrate my family’s long-standing love of cows.
It’s so much easier to photograph animals when they are not nervous of you. I’ve struggled to get any decent photos of birds recently – they all seem to fly away at the merest hint of my presence. But these calves were all around me, thinking that I was bringing food.
It’s great to find subjects who will pose for the camera, even if they don’t present their best angle.
Thank you Dad for making such a success of the family farm!
