Hello again. I have some time up my sleeve before popping out to work so sharing some sheep photos I took last night. The setting sun was outlining them really nicely, but by the time I fetched the camera, it was too late, and they moved. These two live in the paddock across the lane from me. Their fleece looks really stroke-able at the moment.



I presume the dark patches are from rubbing against burnt timber or from bedding down in ash and coals – the neighbour’s have a bonfire every year when they tidy the paddock.

Thanks for looking!

Cattle Collection

After walking the dog this morning, I grabbed the Nikon D3000, put it on auto, and went down the side lane to take these pictures of cattle, just for you. I’m liking this theme and wanting to blog photos to see what happens with them. 🙂

I think this red one is a steer or a bull


I hope you liked my cows! Have good day. 🙂

4th Monday Challenger’s Choice (Pick One: Abstraction, Animals, Architecture, Food Photography, Night Photography, Objects, Panorama, Portraiture, Still Life, Street Photography, and Travel).


My theme here is animals, and (tongue-in-cheek) street photography. 

All images were taken with the Nokia Lumia 530 Windows Phone.


Out walking, the dog and I saw a group of sheep grazing at the end of the service road.


In early January these sheep appeared in our yard, leaving enough evidence around the vicinity indicating that they were out for days. I assumed plenty of people reported them to the local council, so I didn’t bother.
