Every epic landscape should look a little sheepish

Ewe from around here?

Bucolic. It sounds like something nasty which babies suffer from. Instead it refers to the gentle pastoral nature of the countryside. The British landscape is rarely in full sunshine but don’t let the heavy clouds deter you from taking photos, especially in autumn. What does help are sheep. They’re like the clouds of the land. They break up the browns and greens with spots of piercing white. They’re cute, they’re wooly but above all they make my significant other very hungry. The above photo was taken in Keswick which is in the Lake District (Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth country – they ruled as king and queen for a while). Below is on the island of Skye, on the west coast of Scotland. (click on the photos to see them bigger).
