[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In Britain for many years we had our daily milk delivered to our doorsteps. Not so much now, most people go to the supermarket or their local shop.

These cows were so close to the houses that it brought this title to mind.
Some of them are Jersey cows, renowned for their creamy milk.
The village is The Lizard, on the hilltop just before you go downhill a little and reach Britains most southerly mainland point.[My post 'Where land meets sea' shows this point.]

Thanks for looking.

Old traditions gave way to moderninzations for efficiency and profit but there are some traditions that shouldn't be forgotten. Nice juxtaposition of the cows and the beautiful house. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

2 pints please.

Hi Jean.
As cows go,they look the business, it does look funny so close to these terranced houseds....their ears look cute as they stand out.

stv ;o))

A nice catch, Jean!
The title suits the picture and the light and exposure you got in here is just fantastic.
Lush green color of the grass add another charm and beauty to the scene.
Well timed shot!

Kind regards,

superbe ces vaches dans ce pré vert devant les maisons d'habitation cela donne une vraie ambiance de campagne et au moins les enfants ne sont pas effrayés lorsqu'ils rencontrent une vache.
Belle journée

Hi Jean, I miss the days of milk straight from the udder.Jersey cows make the best milk.. Nice colours, I take it from the look of the sky it was a cloudy day. Fiona
