The story behind this image

OK! OK! So a photograph of a cow is not my ususal fare!

But this particular cow was so perfectly positioned for this image that I couldn't resist.

My wife Liz and I were out on one of our habitual strolls along the North Wales coast at Llanfairfechan on a beautiful day in July when I came across this fleeting cameo.

Llanfairfechan is better known for its huge beaches and abundant wildlife than for farming, but with a lovely view inland towards the foothills of Snowdonia's Carneddau range, punctuated by those cows, I though a 'non-standard' look at Llanfairfechan might be in order for once.
