The Sheep Near The Top Of England by 

Another view of the Scafell range in the Lake District National Park,this time from the descent of Swirl How in the Coniston Fells.
The hardy Herdwick sheep roam these fell tops and don’t seem too bothered by walkers and climbers.There is usually one to be found on most summits looking for unsuspecting tourists to feed them.(Pretty much like a certain terrier of my aqquaintance)
From this angle we can also see Broad Crag which is out of view in the shot below. Broad Crag is 934 m (3,064 ft) Details of the other peaks can be obtained by clicking on the image below.
Sony Alpha 350 DSLR 18-70 lens,2 RAW images tonemapped in Photomatix and merged in Photoshop

Living in the English Lake District,Cumbria,NW England with a love of photographing locations in Cumbria and Scotland, especially landscapes.
