There are so many things to see in this small mountain in what concerns rural life. I took this photo in the afternoon when we were returning back after a long, long walk. A man and his dog looking after the sheep. This activity is slowly disappearing, but it's still easy to find in some regions of the country.

una imagen encantadora y llena de movimiento.
Me gusta el perrito ayudando al pastor a recoger las ovejas en círculo. la chiquitina es un encanto.
Preciosa toma de la naturaleza querida amiga.
Buenas noches y um abraço,

When I saw the source of this photo of a flock of sheep from Evora, I hoped it was one of your photos. It's a beautiful, bucolic scene with the shepherd included. I can imagine there was quite a bit of bleating ("bah," the sounds that sheep make).
Warm regards, Ana,

Sheep herding and the old tradition dies hard hopefully, a good depiction the composition is excellent: just enough of the whole thing seen so close what's going on etc to give me an impression of the landscape and the activity. I liked the way the almost balck & white sheep created the vague illusion of being in 'mono' against the pale green bg. I really enjoy this type of rural photo, it's exactly the type of photography I aspire to. Great capture, Congrats

I missed this photo. I like it a lot. It's a fine capture of the shepherd and his sheep and I enjoy watching the dog working hard to keep the herd together. The light is nicely mild and the colours have very pleasant tones.

There is lots to enjoy in this pastoral scene. The flock of sheep are so clearly being herded by the dog and the man. A lovely scene and a very well processed image.
Kind Regards, Ann

I know where some of those Portuguese sheep herders went, some of them are in Northern Nevada. Good documentation of the daily life of people with good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.

First i saw the sheeps and the shepherd, Ana, than realized there is a dog running and keeping them in close formation.
His movement over the pic. space, added much dynamism to the whole.
Fine photo of life in rural country.
