Shadowy Sheep, New Zealand Sheep and tree shadows in today’s late afternoon winter sunshine. Slightly west of Tapanui. I mentioned the striking scene and Nigel stopped and took the shot.

It’s exactly as we saw it, a momentous moment when we actually managed to hit the scene at *just* the right time – even though it was quite by chance!

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Beautiful shot, Liz–pass on my compliments to Nigel for capturing it so well. Like so many others, I can’t help at marvel at the sheep and the shadows, but I also enjoyed the multi-layered background as the pasture gives way to the trees, which then give way to hills and mountains.

They look as though they’re social distancing 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ha! When I saw them I couldn’t help wondering if the long shadow-lines had any effect on the way the sheep had spread themselves out! I guess not.. but it was an interesting thought 🙂 LikeLike Reply Whenever I’ve seen sheep they’ve tended to bunch up. Maybe it is the shadow lines. Who knows what goes on in a sheep’s head?
