When I first came upon these 'celestial' cows, they were in a confused bunch and I needed to 'stretch' them in keeping with the axis of the distant shore line and the water's edge.
I had hoped for the water to be lit as in a stage set but it seemed to me there was little chance. Just prior to departure, I looked once more up to the sky and saw that there was a ribbon of light gifted to me and one minute later, it had gone.
Over a period of an hour or so, they gradually complied and thankfully chose to remain paddling, whilst still maintaining their line. Despite my silent pleas not to do so and my concern that the photograph may lose its cohesion, a few stubbornly decided to lie down.
