Q. What makes this photo the best of the set?
A. When you get it, you get this feeling like, okay, I'm done. All day long I never got that -- I just thought, I gotta keep working this. Once I was in the car, I got a lot of frames where the cows were in the distance. As they got closer it got better. Finally, I found that, compositionally, this one was the best. I liked that the rancher, John, was a little off-center, and you see a group of cows the whole way from the left to the right. I was lucky to have good clouds that day.
