Anyone in the UK that has watched the series Two Pints of Lager… will understand the reference in the title ;-)

I was taking pictures of the Gayhurst Gardens in Milton Keynes (UK), when I felt I was being watched… I turned around and saw these sheep standing a couple of meters behind me, curiously watching what I was doing… With the sun shining behind them, they came out very nicely in IR, even if they do look a bit creepy.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    What a beautiful IR shot! A perfect title as well mate.

  • Thank you my friend. The title is a very obscure reference, unless you have watched the series… But it’s the first and only title that came to mind as soon as I saw the picture. :-)
