It was a very snowy day and I was just out driving around looking for a photo that would show the snow and cold. I was driving in the country and came across cows in a field during the snow storm, but it wanes right, for some reason I didn't feel the photo. So I pressed on with the idea in my head of cows in the snow just looking for the right one. I crept along in the my car going 10 mph in the country roads were they are the last to get plowed so I should have turned around but I really wanted the photo that was in my head. Then towards the end of the day as it was starting to get dark I saw this cow on the side of the road in a farmers field. I just grabbed my camera forgetting about my coats and gloves. The black cow caught my eye first then I saw the frost and snow around his face, his eyes were so cold looking and he just stood and stared at me. I left the shutter open a little longer to get the streaks of flakes but left the 2.8 apturer wide open to get the shallow depth of filed and concentrate on the face and the nice detail and contrast. It was so cold I couldn't see the screen on the camera so it wanes until the next day I downloaded the card and saw the image.
