Issue 153 Cover

In a change to the norm, you might recognise this cover shot. Usually we only run an image that’s never been seen before, but this one was a bit different – it emerged as part of our Forum Photography competition. Before it even went on to win the ‘Gnarpooning’ category, we’d spotted that it could make an excellent cover. Congratulations to Colournoise!
