Returning from my first ever vist to Keem Bay on Achill Island, County Mayo, Ireland; this herd of sheep ran to greet us, seemingly expecting food. This is the shot I took on the way back down the mountain as the light was fading and below is the one I took on the way up. We saw the farmer a little further on with bags of feed in front of his tractor on his way up so they weren’t to be disappointed. Very curious and brave they approached in roaring wind and it was all I could do to keep my camera arm still as it blew.
