Love the way the cattle seem to be sitting on a fluffy surface because of the ? blowing sand ? - also the sight of the kite surfers (is that the right term) above them.
PS if they are bulls then the title should not have been cows as that is the female of the species.
This gives me the impression they are resting in a low, soft mist! But of course its a beach. Great picture .
Great picture, just 2 questions:
1) Why the new web design forces us to scroll all the way down to find the Photo of the Day, THE daily highlight in the site?The new design looks like an old blog...
2) Why "Andalusia" instead of the correct Spanish spelling "Andalucia"? You wouldn't like Spanish-speaking people writing "Niu Iorc" instead of New York...
Well, this is like a scene from a movie by Fellini or Alejandro Jodorowsky. Surreal. It seems like a prelude to something that is about to happen that will be even more bizarre.
thank you for capturing such a seemingly rare sight. I never knew bulls did this and you've got parasailers there too! neat!!
Something curious going on here. The downloaded photo indicates the photo was by Dmitry Gorilovskiy, 2011 National Geographic Photo Contest, but the caption above indicates it was by Andrew Lever and was submitted to the 2013 contest.
Great picture and I love the story behind the picture (the things we do to try and get a good shot!) :)
@mn tb Actually New York in Spain is called "Nueva York"... and I think is correct to call places with their translation. For example, "Rome" in Italian is "Roma", but nobody calls it in that way abroad.
Anyway, beautiful photo, I loved that place.
@Janice H.thank you Janice !
@laura Mcdowellthank you Laura !!
@t bunk I would like confirmation of when this image was actually taken because 35 deg this Dec in Tarifa (only 30 mins drive for me) it has not been!
Plus these cows are so tame you can basically walk right up to them.
So all in all its a bit of a rubbish story tbh.
@t bunk True... :O Holy cow.. How did the NATGEO PHOTO EDITORS overlook it...
@Gabrielle EthingtonThank you Gabrielle....!
@Jon SeguiHi, i was living in tarifa from March until July. The story is true....Please do not be so negative.....It was a very hot day....! get out with your camera and catch some amazing images !! All the best Andrew...
