I spent most of today slaving over a hot computer, arranging a piece of music for a festival that’s coming up next month. By 5pm I’d finished it and was beginning to feel in need of some fresh air so I went out in my car in search of today’s photo. I didn’t have a clue what I was looking for so I headed up towards Goodwood in the hope that inspiration would strike. I drove past a field of cattle near the Rolls Royce factory but they were a long way from the fence and I didn’t have my long lens with me. Instead I stopped and took some abstract shots of the metal gate to another field. Content that I had something in the bag I set off for home, passing the same field of cattle again. As I did so I noticed they were now much closer to the fence so I stopped and hopped out of the car. I can only assume it was almost feeding time as they were all heading the same direction with a purposeful look. As they did so some of them stopped and stared at me and it was then that I caught this shot. I’ve had to crop it fairly heavily as my maximum 105mm focal length was still rather inadequate but there was still enough detail left to make a satisfying portrait. I wonder how long they had to wait for dinner?!
