Cow in River, Suffolk coast, 2008

Graham Turner

£50.00


It is for moments like this that former Guardian photographer Graham Turner, now two years into retirement, still carries a camera. He took it on the River Waveney near Bungay Common on the Suffolk coast, at the end of August 2008. Walking at dawn to do a spot of pike fishing, the photograph “just presented itself”, he says. He walked briskly towards the cow – but not too briskly so that he wouldn’t spook her or the other cattle nearby – and managed to shoot just two frames before she moved away. Without her, says Turner, it would have been a pleasant view, but she brought life to the composition. And she was the right colour: “A brown cow wouldn’t have had the same effect.”
