Caught whilst out walking on holiday. The herder is a young lady from the nearby farm helped, of course, by her trusty sheep-dog (Just in front of the quad bike). The flock really did not want to climb this steep narrow path so the dog had it's work cut out making sure the sheep didn't run into the crop! Enjoy. Herb
Fantastic capture Herb!! Really well done.

Interesting diagonal composition. Nice subject too. Cheers, Jenny. Australia. Voted
Thanks Jenny and Tony for your visit to this picture. Like you - I like it too. I know you both have sheep in your part of the world so might have seen this sort of picture yourselves. The diagonal, of course, adds a little bit of arty composition and direction. Herb
But I can't recall seeing any drystone walls over in NZ.

Herb, you seem to have an eye for beautiful compositions. I really like this photo because of the contrast between the four diagonal parts with different colours.
Herb, I've come back and given this shot the Yellow Star it so richly deserves.
Cheers, Tony in New Zealand
Tony You honour me! I'm really pleased that you see in this what I saw, running to find the best spot to capture this! Cheers. Herb
Tomas, really glad you like another of my pictures. Herb
Mathematical flock of sheep! Love this picture, Herb!
Norrel, I would not have thought this picture to be mathematical, but now you express it, maybe you are right. In any case, thanks again for your visit. Herb
