Cow 1

Posted by
Pawn (Den Haag, Netherlands) on 20 July 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

In the rural aerea near Den Haag there are still quite some cows to be found. This (red-brown and white) breed gets its name from the region in which it was bred - where the three rivers Meuse, Rhine and Issel (or Oude IJssel) meet. The breed is known as MRI or MRIJ for short.

NIKON E995 1/180 second F/5.2 ISO 100 26 mm

Photography has done at least as much to deaden conscience as to arouse it.
