Winter Sun

Thought I would share another shot of the sheep with the low winter sun.

Continuing the shameless advertising for my ehibition of paintings that opens this week in the East end of London.  This link will take you to an invite for the private view - would be great if any SCers can make it - both Ingrid and I will be there.  If not the show runs until the 16th March.  My Private Idaho

Got their woolly coats on I see, and is he asking what you are doing with that strange thing in front of your face? Nice capture.
blackdog: Thanks Les - I tried going closer for another shot, but he had seen enough and hopped it ;o)

Sheep with attitude - they are positively glowing! The touches of light on the road and the sheep's backs really lift this.
Ingrid
blackdog: Thanks Ingrid - those sheep were amonst the most agressive I have met for quite some time ;o)

A bit like the irradiated sheep around Sellafield. Don't get too close.
blackdog: Yes - they do have a certain omo look! Just as well I didn't tint it lime green!
Nice winter shot with effective backlit low sun: I thought these were the plains of your private Idaho (not everybody has got one of those) for one moment, Mike
blackdog: Thanks Chris - well not quite my private Idaho - but a lone tree crops up in one of the paintings. Photo is in the mix as we speak ;o)

Did you find these sheep grazing near Chernobyl?

Actually I have some sheep shots that I was not sure what to do with, never thought of B&W. Maybe I will give it a whirl.
blackdog: LOL no not quite a few overhead powerlines though ;o)

Oh no, I bet you are going to zoom in a little each day until it looks like a suet pudding.
blackdog: That's me Chad Mr Predictable ;o)

having suffered major trauma from sheep recently (Chad) this may work as part of my therapy treatment :-]
I like the effect of the road, my eye wants to follow it all the way
blackdog: Well it goes to a Church so you will not get lost ;o)
He's certainly keeping an eye on ewe Mike!!!
blackdog: He certainly was - they were actually very agressive for sheep. Shocking!

Mike I was reading all the comments, I was almost going to say: watch out don't fall asleep with so many sheep around, well I said almost...grin This is some great picture again, love the light round the wool of the sheep, love the refelction of the water on the road and the depth of the picture, I like it.
blackdog: You will be telling me he is pulling the wool over my eyes next ;o)

Thanks Astrid ;o)
Very nice composition with a great lighting and contrast Mike
blackdog: Thanks Richard ;o)

Did you and Ellie call each other last night, Mike? smile This is different but similar to hers. I love the back-lighting and the sheep shadows, especially in B&W.
blackdog: LOL - no Ginnie, but I have just had a look ;o) Her sheep look nice and friendly and cosy ;o) Don't think you would say that about mine ;o) Thanks.

highlights a bit too blown out?....ike the scene caught though...
blackdog: Perhaps - I don't have your patience to fiddle tho' Sam ;o) I did set out to take it this way and was pleased with the result - perhaps if the sun hadn't been quiite so bright. Thanks Sam.

Fine by me Mike. Just wish the road curved to the left into the picture rather than right out of it. Bloody planners can't do anything righttongue
Great lighting Mike, like it.
