Oh, thank you so much! It was when I saw Les's most recent picture this morning that I suddenly remembered your old friend, Colin, and wondered if you were still seeing him occasionally. I am, of course, so happy that he's still alive and kicking and, presumably, still caring for his sheep!
Like your previous pictures of this venerable gentleman, this one too is excellent, particularly as it isn't just a straightforward portrait but is a picture in which we see Colin at work in his very own happy environment. He seems so content - as do his sheep - and I love the way that sheep is sticking its head right into Colin's bag of feed.
A delightful photograph with lovely light and colours, fine composition and excellent details and clarity.
Thank you so much, Gladys!

Hi Gladys. has Colin got more wooly (beard i mean) since the last time we saw him? i wonder if he has delved into sheep vocabulary and can can hold a sheepish conversation by now. Joking aside, a fine shot of a man who loves his four legged friends. Regards. Klaudio.

We have seen this interesting old gentleman before, he certainly makes a splendid photographic subject sat surrounded by his sheep. A perfect portrait, beautifully lit and with superb colours and clarity. What more can I say, except bravo!

Beautiful portrait of this original man, he seems to be a calm and benevolent man, and his beard is impressive

Love this kind of human capture, more with such a person, beard and sheeps
I am not sure, there are more captures of him?

I never thought there was shepherds in UK yet. very nice register with a good portrait of the man and the animals being feed. TFS.
