Ann and efejota, you warm my poor heart by you comments and splendid YSL's. Very happy indeed that you both enjoy this so. As it happens, just some hours before this lighting, I realised that my SLR battery had run out and so had to take this with my emergency trusty 'happy snapper Canon Ixus 500' but it looks as if it didn't turn out so bad after all.

Cheers, Herb

Rain is a good chance to have a shower for sheeps. I like their stoicism and practicism. I like this photo.

Nickolay and Daniel , this spot seemed to be blessed with fine lighting. The best taken as here, just before the sun sinks and near storm time. Great that you both enjoy this.

Cheers, Herb

Wilma, Dana and Yane&André, apoligies for not seeing this so long ago in 2011. Maybe I was on holiday? Many thanks in all events for your lovely comments, visits and awards. See you soon.

Thierry, another worthwhile comment from you. Yes, some special lighting here. Again, thanks for your precious YSF.

Best wishes to you all, Herb

Best wishes from the UK, Herb
