Beau paysage pastoral ! Jolie photo. Bonjour de France. Annie

Ian Stehbens on April 20, 2008

Hello Antonio and Annie,

Thank you both for your responses to this gentle pastoral scene. It is a joy that my photos are appreciated by you. I love the valleys in this part of England.

And in my travels I love France and Spain too, I assure you.

Greetings from sunny Sydney, Australia.

Lovely views of England, Ian. So peaceful and gentle--and beautifully photographed.

Thankyou Marilyn. And do enjoy the great adventure.

And I saw in England of little sheep in orange waistcoats! It was so unusual and cute, Yan. Is it easy to find them in such dress? Best wishes. Eva

Ian Stehbens on April 22, 2008

Dear Eva,

If I were a sheep in England, and someone made me a little orange waistcoat, I am sure I would wear it!

The dye is a way that the farmers can identify their sheep, in the event that they wander into another farm - which they will do at times. But I do not know how many farmers put coats on their sheep. Some studs do I know, and I am sure some domestic sheep are pampered with blue or orange waistcoats!

Best wishes, Yan

You have so many beautiful new uploads, Ian. This one is so sweet.

Cheers, Inessa

While this is very English, may I be forgiven for seeing a bit of the west of Ireland here too? I am delighted to share my photos with you, dear Inessa, and to see all your new uploads too. They make for a very special set and reveal a wonderful journey, below the surface, from above and from on the water.

May the road rise to meet you, Inessa!

Yes Ian, the stone walls look rather Irish than English:)

Thank you for viewing my new uploads:). This area is already well-presented with many photographs in Panoramio.

Thank you also for the Irish Blessing :)

Have a great winter ;)

Cheers, Inessa

Hello Ian This is a beautiful picture! I like it. They are looking at you for the picture! Greetings from Canada, thanks for sharing those pictures. Sylvie

Ian Stehbens on May 22, 2008

Dear Sylvie, tiopepe8 and Inessa,

I grew up with calves and cows and learnt their ways and their language and I can speak to them. But sheep are quite another thing. I know they recognise a familiar voice, but I think I confused these two. They knew my voice was that of a stranger but I spoke to them in the best sheep language I knew and they understood, but they looked at me as if I had lost my senses! And my friends were thinking the same! So I was a loser all around that day! And I still fell a little sheepish just thinking about it.

But I am pleased that you like this rural image.

Warm greetings from Sydney.

Not so bad, Ian. They are obviously listening; your Australian accent might be confusing though LOL

Cheers, Inessa
