    Superb composition and beautiful greens!

  • Thankyou so much, I suppose the grass is so green due to the amount of rain. It’s a lovely place to visit.

    This shot just speaks to me. There is a loneliness, exuding from both the tree & the sheep, but, yet, they are not alone. Does that make sense??? Anyway, I love this capture.

  • Thanks so much. Having read your comment and others, I now feel very sad for the sheep. Maybe he/she just wanted to be alone.

    Great location and a beautifully composed shot. It emanates a wonderful feeling of solitude and impending doom.

    Fantastic shot, the sheep is truly adding an extra dimension to the picture!! Dangerous looking clouds which are getting drilled through by the sun rays. Very well done.

  • Thanks, Brendan for the feedback, much appreciated.
