Locking Horns!

I was wandering in the farms of my native place, a small village in the Konkan region along the Western coast of India. It was late May morning and a lot of cattle were out grazing the field. Noticed this buffalo and ox locking horns against each other, a unique thing for me, because its generally either two ox or two buffaloes, never one each.

I had read in a photography magazine once, that Timing plays a very important role in photography. The importance of which even excuses minor mistake that we may commit while clicking the shot. The above photograph is one such example of where i got the timing right but the emotions that could have been captured, had i been able to accentuate the eyes of either animals, was missed. But, thanks to the prominent back, one is able to differentiate between the buffalo and the ox.

Take Care

  2. @Sindhuthanks for your thought on the photograph. yea i did change it to a B/W mode, to give it that rugged country side look. moreover this is photograph where i feel color wouldnt do justice to the content:P properly focussed eyes can literally make or break a picture:Dtake careciao
