Photographer's Note

Here today a pastoral sight that I found well pleasant, on the commune of CALENZANA in BALAGNE where I remain.
Every day I see this herd feeding in this field a grass which pushed back after a very dry summer. Sometimes the evening I must stop my car to let it pass because the sheep take the road to return to the nearby sheep-fold.
Transhumance is not practised any more in many areas of CORSICA because of the land utilization and the development of individual constructions.
At the bottom, at the foot of the mountains, the village of CALENZANA.
