I had to walk into the field to get close enough but when the cattle started walking towards me I turned back... quick.

  • I had to chase a young bull once. Well, the truth? I was supposed to be bait to help my cousin lasso it and get it where it belonged. Man, that was years, years ago.

    Ver strong imagery. For me it's the centered and dark animal...seems so menacing and control in this context. Beautifully executed, no jive.

    answer: bait for a bull! sounds like a blast...

  • Muuhu!
    I love the way the tree line meets the shape of the clouds.
    Great job!

  • Funny story - I am glad you turned back quickly. I like this photo the way it is - with the background - as opposed to the one you would have gotten if you got a little closer.

  • The color tones of the sky and the threes are just wonderful - soft grey, purple - wonderful!

  • I know it breaks the compositional rule, but I like how you've positioned the bull dead centre. Makes it look more meancing, like he's guarding HIS area

    answer: I screw all rules!

  • Trevligt! Observera att det som ser ut som bröstet där fram egentligen är konturen av det svarta hÃ¥l som sekunden senare kreaturet förmodas sugits in i. Bevittnade du detta ovanliga fenomen Jonas?

    answer: Är det någon som gjort Tranan på dig i karaten eller?! ...är väl fan inget ovanligt fenomen - händer ju 9,5 fall av 10!
