That's an Aberdeen Angus - a Highland breed (good beef cattle). Some of them had very long horns I seem to remember. It's just as well they're pretty docile with headgear like that, but then I don't suppose their eyesight is all that great with that mop of hair in the way :grin:

Maybe they're not actually docile at all - just oblivious to their environs?

Ooh... those are excellent. I must try scanning in some of my transparencies. Not sure I can though. I have an appropriate scanner (Nikon) but it's ancient, and son reckons it won't connect with my not so ancient pc. There must be a way... You're right about the colours. They're really special.

To continue the Scottish theme, here's a dog that lives in the sea at Plockton.

Thanks. I don't know how it makes a difference, but the colours definitely look more saturated with transparencies - even when you compare them with pics taken on 100 ASO film. Bit of a nuisance getting them printed, though. I guess your old printer uses a serial port connector, rather than a USB. Funny how these things become obsolete so quickly. I guess your best bet would be to hitch up the scanner to an old PC and burn everything to disk while you still can :/

Plockton's an idyllic looking spot - very picturesque :smiley: The light is different in Scotland, isn't it? Strange kind of gunmetal grey to the skies in winter (driche, as they say), and even in summer everything looks like it's got a soft filter on it. Muted, somehow.

We went touring up around Inverness, Oban, and all over the place. I liked it, and look forward to doing it again sometime :smiley:

Thanks :smiley: That last one was taken on Loch Ness. You can almost imagine a large serpentine neck arching out of the water in the background, can't you?

Definitely.  *wishes for a Loch Ness monster smiley*
