Took this photo just a few weeks back. Caught the sheep enjoying the sunset as much as myself.
For those of you that know the area it was taken at McLaren Flat not far from The McLaren Vale wine district.
I hope you like it!

Nice shot Paul.
You have captured a nice sunset and I love the glow on the sheep s wool. It's nice to see that not only man appreciates a goosd sunset:)
Did you do a lot of pp on the shot?
I think your crop of it and your framing does the shot justice.
Thanks for sharing

Congratulations for this beautiful sunset. The shape of the trees is just spelndid and the presence of the sheep adds a greet detail. I'm impressed by the way you've managed the light and by the incredible sharpness of this shot.
Thanks for sharing!

Impeccable photo. Marvelous the silhouette of the trees.
The position of the sheep does seem a strange hairy creature that enjoys the sunset. :)
The only my perplexity is on the colors.

Yes I do like it! There are so many sunsets on TE, but this one is really great! Wonderful colors, and I like the sheep in the foreground and the silhouettes of the trees! Congratulations!

Very peacefull and serene looking photo. Presence of sheep makes it atypical sunset photo. To me it's a story of a lonley sheep enjoying the sunset, rather than being just another photo of red and yellow sunset behind a tree.
It makes one ponder as to why and how the sheep ended up all by itself, and if it really is enjoying the sunset or meerely looking at the same direction.
This photo is a truly great peace of art and storytelling. There are simply no flows with, neither technical nor compositional.
Thanks for sharing.

All your landscape photos are breath-taking. This is no exception and even more. It's impeccable in every way. TFS.

Very beautiful composition!
It could look a little bit too classically "beautiful" if not the sheep. and the sheep makes one smile. The sheep makes this photo.
I like it very much.

Amazing work! The luminuos layering of the horizon is superb, the sunset, the silhoutte of trees, the soft outline of the sheep adds character, frame/border and image! would sell like pancakes in souvenier shops!
