Cows in Field, West Sussex

Cows, Horsham, West Sussex August 2020

This is from last summer. I know I have titled this cows – but I have a feeling these are really bullocks. On the farmland near where I live there is always a fairly continuous turnover of livestock.

And as you can see here, the field now contains sheep. As subjects, they are quite different when I approach the hedge: the cows (or bullocks) tend to walk over to stare at me, while the sheep usually to run away. Sometimes, if I use my patented stalking method (stand very still), the sheep drift back. But they are aways watching me very closely.

I took this picture one afternoon as I walked home from Bath (a city in the UK). It was mid-afternoon. A challenge with a panoramic, is that at least half of the pleasure is in the scale of thing – and here it is just a little rectangle on colour.

I like the “slice of colour” – if I had been using a proper camera, I would be able to zoom in and see lots of detail (I really enjoy that – particularly fabrics), but it is from an iPhone – so you get what you get.
