Heading down to the farm where you had a recent barbecue?

Right place right time.

Precisely, Barrie, on my way to my daughter's farm, from 12,000 miles away that indeed was a seriously forensic deduction, almost clairvoyant!

Nice light and colour in this one, and a perfect crop for just the right amount of space.

Very interesting processing. Nice over sharpening type texture to the trees, road and fleeces. Is this a phone shot or the Oly?
I assume the flock was just taking advantage of a shady patch?

You need the sheep whisperer (an advert on UK telly for something or other - can't remember).

Thanks Jason, I appreciate that.

Nadia's farm comprises 118 acres. When I sit in a rocker on her veranda overlooking her "back paddock", I gaze at the land through half closed eyes, put on a gravelly Burl Ives voice, and rasp, 'Ya know gal, ah 'members a tarm when ah rode fa' three days to a hootenany, where ah met ya dear mother, God bless her soul, child!'. Always good for a laugh.

Whilst you were watching the antics of a 'Blue Tail Fly' with the 'Big Rock Candy Mountain' in the background and a 'Little Bitty Tear' in your eye from all that laughing, I suppose.

It's a phone shot through the window; Oly on back seat. To step out to get it would have probably spooked the mob.
A while later the farmer rocked up in a ute with two collies who quickly drove them into a paddock. Nice seeing them at work.
They belonged to Nadia's neighbour, a mile or so down the road. She said he was simply transferring them from another paddock.

Yep, a sheep whisperer could have rounded 'em up! Actually, Nadia is a horse whisperer ,
She breeds Welsh Cobs and there's nothing she can't do with 'em!
