    This morning I set off walking from my cottage to go to Bowden farm, about 1 mile away. There was low cloud, drizzle and a strong wind blowing.

    This shows the conditions looking back south at the top of the hill. Salcombe and Bolt Head are in the distance

    Shortly after I arrived the cows were turned out into the yard, having been milked. Here's the bull with a couple of lady friends

    And here's a curious cow

    What a wonderful set Barrie. Love the Black & White, what did you use? It's brightening up here in Surrey :)

    The conversion was carried out in Bibble Pro 5, there is a plug in which supposedly replicates various film stock, developer and paper type and grade, so really lots of presets with fine adjustments such as printing exposure available. These are supposed to replicate Ilford Pan F on an Ilford Multigrade paper.
    Whether they truly do or not...? Since it's a dark and damp day that's the mood I've tried to capture here. A few tears in the cloud here, but they only reveal slightly higher cloud at the moment.
