Two of these sheep seemed transfixed by the view and the changing light,
whereas the third was being more pragmatic.

I bet if they could climb trees they would try to chew their way back down Smile
A most agreeable pastoral; don't know why it makes me think of Christmas cards but it does, somehow.

The colour was a mere coincidence, Alan. Back to b&w tomorrow, from me at least.

Great composition and presentation, Alan. The darker conifer balancing the trees on the horizon on the right very nicely, good tonal range.

And still they get better... Is there no end to your talent? Love the square crop on this one Alan, it works a treat. The layers of light and contrast are superb. Top shot matey!

Sheep do have a habit of staring into space, enjoying the view I doubt, possibly they hear something that we can't.
Nicely composed monochrome image.

Sheep-based aesthetics is a relatively unexplored area.

You reminded me of Monty Python's Holy Grail and the "shrubbery".
