It's all about the tongues
« on: October 21, 2010, 08:18:22 PM »

I've found that when talking about creatures of the bovine type it's all about the tongues.





Cheers,

These images were taken at Bundanon, Arthur Boyd's property that he left to the Australian people.

On a previous trip I had stayed for a week at Riversdale another Boyd property. On that occasion I got to see a cattle sales day and they were going to sell off young bulls. There was a lot of butting heads and I took this image:



So when I planned to stay At Bundanon I wanted to see if I could repeat this shot. Slow shutter speeds and plenty of movement. Reality kicked in when I realised that I wasn't getting any action. Then the penny dropped, there were no bulls in the fields that I had been shooting, they were full of cows and their calves. What I ended up with was a completely different series, that is, cows tongues. Shot on low shutter speeds they are not technically perfect but they convey the 'action' that was happening whilst I was there.







Here too I had a temptation to clone out the chaff on their faces but it is a reminder that New South Wales has had nine years of drought and I'm happy to say that we are finally drought free.

Cheers
