Beautiful Britain – Sheep In The Scenes

Near Llyn Gwynant, North Wales

As I wander, climb and trek around Britain, in the hills, mountains and valleys I can look back and realise even I take things for granted. As I look back through a year’s photos on my computer and phone I see that many a time there was living company when all thoughts where my own. The photos are scattered with livestock – bulls, cows and lots of…. sheep. All weathers, all terrains there they are, living, seeing and breathing some of the most wonderful scenery our land has to offer. Certainly not camera shy thats for sure πŸ˜€

  1. I also love sheep,surprise surprise. For me they always represent peace and tranquility however whilst most of these super images do suggest this the Great Langdale shot I feel suggests contemplation which is why its my own favorite. Love the focusing also. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  2. Love the photos. Especially the Peak District, Borrowdale and Langdale. What camera/lenses are you using and are you using filters for the sky?

  3. The Peak District photograph is very powerful, but I also like the Great Langdale one with that sheep surveying the landscape. You have some spectacular shots here. It makes me think of a question I have often pondered; why are sheep not grass / landscape coloured? For a tasty and wolf-friendly snack, I would have thought they should be more camouflaged.

  4. Your sheep pictures are great. Animals can make great subjects. They often appear on my photos. I also find that people I walk with who visit the Lakes from away have a fascination with the 'Hefted' sheep on our fells. How they know their own territory and stay there. This was a major issue during the foot and mouth epidemics. If the sheep flocks were slaughtered then they would lose this local instinct.
