This scene was captured in the parkland of the Hughenden Valley, near High Wycombe, a few weeks ago, using an IR converted K-r and the plastic DA 35mm lens. These cattle are regularly allowed to roam the valley, and while they feast on the grass they take no notice of the people and dogs sharing the space there.

Cracking image Philip - works so well with the contrast of the dark cows against the snowy white trees and the moody grey skies

A beautiful image of a scene that is very familiar to me.

Hughenden park was an extension of my back garden from 1983 to 2006. I lived on the hill in the village of Downley overlooking the park and could see much of it from my bedroom window.

Thanks for sharing this image, it brings back lots of memories.

It really works well as the processing suits the textural interest in both the clouds and trees. Also the black tones of the cows bring a solidity, a sort of base, to the dynamic range.

It's good to see another older model, the KR, still putting in useful service... Like my K7, some of our Pentax models just seem to keep going and going....

Indeed, it's all about the contrasts - lovely work, Philip.
