This adorable image of Highland cow calf best friends Flora and Calum is one of 800 photographs that Jack took over two days in early spring 2021. Here in the gallery the team couldn’t agree on one image from the 800 to print and publish so after much deliberation we narrowed it down to a shortlist of eight and put it to our Facebook followers to pick their favourite. Of these eight it became apparent there were two clear favourites, this image, ‘Flora and Calum’ and another of proud mum Bonnie showing off her twin calves (view it here). What could we do but listen and publish both!

 

At the gallery, we particularly love this image as we feel it perfectly encapsulates the personalities of this mischievous duo. Jack explained that when he was taking photographs of Flora, Calum and all their friends, these two were clearly inquisitive and looked like they wanted to investigate him further but were very shy so kept their distance. We can definitely see a cheeky sparkle in their eyes!   

 

 Flora and Calum, are part of the Applecross Fold of Highland Cattle which is the oldest pedigree fold in the UK. According to herd record books their history can be traced back to at least 1700 and it’s likely the fold was around long before that. 

 

If you are planning a trip to visit us in person, you may see these cattle in the fields that run along the road leading to the Applecross Walled Garden and Applecross House. Please be aware that although Highland cattle are generally a docile breed, they can still be highly unpredictable, especially when young calves are involved so don’t approach them and definitely don’t enter their field. Jack was only able to get close enough to take these images due to the kindness of Michael Summers and Floortje van Schuppen who look after, feed and even occasionally halter train these beautiful animals. He would like to extend an immense level of gratitude out to them as I think we can all agree that the end result was two stunning images.    

 

In the gallery, we hand produce a variety of Highland cow wall art products, including the signed paper prints on this page, which come rolled in a tube ready to be framed by your local framer. As well as Highland cow canvases which can be hung as they are or upgraded with one of our local wood frames, which you can read about here. If you’d like an oversized Highland cow print please get in touch.

 

All the paper prints are printed at our gallery in Applecross so that we can ensure the highest standards of quality. They all come signed in the bottom right corner by Scottish photographer Jack Marris and the images are printed using a brand new 12 colour large format printer using archival inks to guarantee there will be no fading over time. We use a luxurious 230gsm matte paper which, when printed on, boasts excellent sharpness, definition and UV stability too. We do not offer framing options for our rolled prints so that you can take them straight to your favourite local framer to choose your own frame dimensions and a colour and finish to suit your own home. This Highland cow image comes in a regular 3:2 ratio size so you can choose a frame straight off the shelf rather than require a custom made one if you’d prefer. 

 

If you love this image be sure to check out our other Highland cow photographs, ‘Bonnie Twins’ and ‘Highland Cattle’. Why not treat yourself or a loved one to a cute Highland cow artwork as a special gift. And if like us, you just can’t choose a favourite, we won’t judge if you want all three!
