Photo of cows under snowy mountains - antique style
Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on June 19th 2007. Click image for larger view.

In this photo you can see some cows grazing under snowy mountains. A scene like this is very national romantic here in Norway and thus I wanted to create an antique look in this photo.

Used some filters in light room and photoshop for the effects.

Aperture: f/4.5

    Wow-your pictures are gorgeous, we have tons of cows here in Wisconsin only they don’t come with gorgeous back drops.

    Small glitch: When I click on this image to get the big version, the BlogCatalog user avatars still come out on top of the photo.
