What a classic moment in life of this nomadic tribe. They remind me that we need little to sustain life and must husband our resources. Thanks for the reminder. Judy

A very interesting shot, and perhaps a perfect TE shot - showing us a place and a people who aer very seldom highlighted here. Very nicely framed, with the sheep crossing the frame diagonally. Not easy to do, but I think this shot cuole have been even better if you could have got ahead of the herders and had the flock coming towards you.
Great work, thanks, Iain
