Sheep in a field….
One sheep says baaa, the other one says
“Hey! I was going to say that!”

Taken near Omarama, South Island, New Zealand

Camera: Olympus Pen E-PL1

Featured in New Zealand Made July 2010
Placed in the Top 10 of the Don’t be Sheepish! challenge, February 2012

I love being a tourist in my own country; the unique flora and fauna, the wonderful people, the striking vivid colours. Photography has opened up my country to me. I try to get out into it & photograph it as often as I can. Access to the great Australian outback is within easy reach of everyone! I hope you take the time to view some of my photos & I hope that they inspire you to go for a drive on the weekend and see what you can see.
