It was a perfect late summer evening and a harsh contrast to today’s frigid temperatures.
Over the past year it has been my desire to capture the cattle that graze the South Dakota prairies. I find Longhorns to be beautiful with so much character in their varied colors and tones, but what captivates me most is, of course, their horns.
|This one is my favorite.|
I chose high key black and white in my final process of several of these photographs. I shot many of them low to the ground in order to isolate the horns against the sky.
There’s a sort of romanticism associated with the longhorn. A timeless classic of majestic beauty.
Thank you, Chris and Katie, for letting me spend time with your cattle!
