Proud Abbey sheep

By xwang
For you, they are just sheep; for me, they are fascinating. I have never seen or been closed to so many sheep in my life Grin...
The photos were taken in Bolton Abbey, a beautiful place, highly recommended to have a walk there... I have never been to Yorkshire Yorkshire people would tell you, it's God's Own County. For somehow, you would find it's true if you stood there..
V1 Proud Abbey sheep.
V2 Sheep are coming.
V3 One is coming to 'check me out'..
V4 .. Just checking...
V5.. Umm.. you are quite boring actually.. I'm off.
V6..Oh.. I love this wall.. taking the itch away..
V7 Sheep are doing what sheep do, as humans.. following each other.
V8 Eating, eating, keep eating..
V9 Some of them seemed "Had enough.."
I think you have as well...Grin. Thanks for looking.

A really lovely series. A beautiful area and as you said, lots and lots of sheep. I loved all versions but especially the ones where the buildings cold be seen.

Hi John,
Really? Goodness me, you are in paradise! Lucky you, what a wonderful place. I took a lot of photos there.. I can't process them all. I was fascinated by so many sheep I've never seen before and been close to them. Most of my visiting places are cities. Many years ago, I bought some postcards, one of them was a flock of sheep, blocked the country road, some of them were staring at the camera, the light, the green, and the black headed sheep... it seemed so far away.. and it was so beautiful for me...Stay where you are, it's God's Own County.
Thank you all.

These are great, Jasmine! I love V8 and 9 especially - so idyllic! Wonderful serene images. They look so odd - the head and legs look like a different animal with a big rug thrown over them!
