Photographer's Note

A quick shot taken 10 days ago during one of my weekly countryside walks with friends, here a flock of sheep being moved to new pastures along a track which we were walking.

With the advent of new and more powerful tractors, shepherds might perhaps be becoming a little more lazy - this farmer was driving these sheep along this farm track with his noisy tractor while we tried to stand as still as possible to prevent upsetting them. Although you can't see them in this photograph, he also had two sheepdogs following to prevent any sheep escaping behind the tractor.

ISO 100, 1/800 sec at f/5.6, focal length 55mm.
