They all seem to have the most amazingly long eyelashes
Peak District, UK, 25th of October 2012. (PRWEB UK) 25 October 2012
It's all about beautiful bovines at the offices of Peak District Online this week as the team at PDO celebrate new pages to their Peak District wildlife section open for business.
With an ever expanding holiday cottage accommodation directory, http://www.peakdistrictonline.co.uk call on the cows to add to an already packed full Peak District playground for wildlife lovers.
"Cows are everywhere in the Peak District - all shapes, all sizes, all varieties, and all colours, but they all have one thing in common," explains James Dobson, director and wildlife photographer responsible for the amusing and beautiful cow photography which accompanies some informative and witty text. "They all seem to have the most amazingly long eyelashes and beautifully wet, big brown eyes."
With photographs getting up close and personal, the glorious shaggy Highland cattle littered amongst the moors in the Dark Peak, and the black-and-white Friesian's grazing in the lush green grass of the White Peak all get a mention and James explains, the stunning Derbyshire landscape wouldn't be the same without them.
"I live near Foolow which is packed full of cows and sheep, making a big impression on the landscape, but also providing me with some perfect photography shots to add to the website I am very passionate about. I feel very privileged that our readers enjoy my photographs, because I really enjoy taking them, for my own pleasure but best of all providing pleasure for visitors to the Peak District."
What started off as a very small, family run company now caters for the largest online holiday cottage, hotels, pubs and caravan sites, providing all the latest up-to-date information surrounding the Peak District for potential visitors but also for those who live and work in the area. Attracting over 200,000 unique visits every month and growing steadily, Peak District Online is certainly popular with its loyal band of customers and readers alike. New pages are added on a weekly basis and the Peak District wildlife section is certainly one of the most visited with readers staying longer on these pages than any other when they first arrive.
"We've been absolutely bowled over with the wonderful comments and compliments we get from our visitors. It's such a pleasure living and working in this beautiful part of the country, and alongside all my team, we are so passionate about promoting the Peak District to as many people who will listen. With the current economic climate, why bother going abroad and spending heaps of money when you can come and visit some stunning places, quaint little villages and sampling the best food for miles around, all the while not spending too much money on hotels and sampling some free entertainment following the wonderful wildlife we have here?" James says.
Long-haired and shorthaired, long horned and short horned, the cows featured on the new page have big brown eyes and some look pretty and some look quite fierce according to James, but they are mostly such kind and gentle creatures.
"It's wonderful seeing the cows as you drive by, hanging their heads over the dry stone walls, munching on the grass that always seems to be greener on the other side," James says." I hope our readers will feel I have done them justice, and don't be fooled with the photograph taken up close and personal with the fierce looking bull. I'll let you into a secret - have a very large lens and stood very far back!"
