The Roaches Nr Leek, Staffordshire.
A very dull morning's photography - then I saw the rays of light coming my way, ditched the car and ran up a hill, into position.
People ask if I placed the sheep using cut and paste. - no, I just called him to stop eating the grass and look left into the picture of course!
This is my signature image.

f/10 • 1/50sec • ISO50 • focal length 50mm • hand held
No time for a tripod!!!

Well done indeed.

I often make a noise to attract attention, a peacock sound works best,

That's the thing about landscape work isn't it? Just when everything looks dull and uninspiring, the sun performs it's magic and hey presto! Nice image, well done.
