I was walking along Hurn Drove, on the southwest of Ash Moor, when there was a sudden movement to my left.  My eyes met this hostile stare – and I was grateful for the water-filled ditch that flowed between us!

But he was content, in his field with his many cows and, as so often is the case, I was merely a passing source of irritation.

There is another photo of a bull on the Somerset Levels – from 2009 – in amongst the little collection of photos here.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  1. I see sadness in his eyes… Don’t know why though… Maybe it’s just me. Lovely portrait.

      Yes, I know what you mean about the sadness, although sitting out there in the big, sunny field with all his cows he should have been on something of a roll. Had there not been a deep ditch between us, I would have been totally petrified.

    I believe you, but my first take on this was, “Awww…” He looks sweet! But I wasn’t there to experience the sheer size of him.

    I think you’re misinterpreting his mood. Maybe he’d just like a little friendly scratch between his ears.

    He looks resigned to life to me!!!


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
