Efford Sheep


Taken as the sun was rising, this is the second of a group of pictures of some sheep in a frosty field at Efford - here -
.....

My pictures for the next week or so have been queued because it is half-term and we are expecting to go away for a few days.

Excellent use of the sun to outline the sheep. Composition excellent.
Backlighting is something I am experimenting with nowadays.

Going to my likeys again.

Beautiful, luminous image of some woolly jumpers doing what they like to do best! Nice one, Ellie.
Lovely lighting Ellie and a nice crisp feel to the shot also.

Lovely lovely AWESOME wink
EJWilkins: Thank you S&S smile
It's all your fault you know! Ages ago one of you uploaded a picture of a sheep, since then I've been wanting to take some of my own but it didn't happen until this particular morning when these were visible through a gate way instead of being well hidden behind a tall, thick hedge. I'm really pleased you think I did these animals justice
Ellie, this is a gorgeous series! I love the glowing, golden hues. (:o)

Lovely. I would have cropped off the top 1/3 as it adds nothing to this picture.

Excellent series of sheep-shots, and I like this one the best!
I also like the fact you can trail through the series and literally see the sun rising, the light changing, and the atmosphere moving!
Good shots.
The composition is super. I love the background colour.
