If you are shooting landscapes up in the Highlands of Scotland you will eventually come across a herd of Highland Cows.  I love photographing these shaggy beasts and, for me, they rank up there with Edinburgh Castle, whisky and haggis as an iconic part of Scotland.

On the last trip north we were shooting in Glen Lochay when we came across some Highland Cows the other  side of a dry stone wall with a beautiful view up the glen as the clouds started to break.

I decided to fit the XF100-400mm to the X-T2 to capture some shots of the cows as they munched on some tough grass, keeping one eye on the rain that was approaching fast across the mountains.

The images were captured in colour and converted to mono in NIK Silver Efex Pro2.
