I have a new photo to share! This is a profile shot of a Blackface sheep.
Blackface Sheep ProfileThe iconic Blackface breed of sheep, with it's characteristic curled horns. Photographed in low-key style, on black.
This approach, from side-on allowed me to frame the eye within the horn.
I took this photo in Snowdonia, Wales, UK.
Blackface sheep, usually Scottish Blackface, are the most common breed of sheep in the UK, due to their hardy nature. And with a bit of luck it's possible to encounter one with these characterful curled horns. I found this willing individual in Snowdonia, a few weeks ago, and set about getting this side-on 'profile' shot.
In other news, I've just come back from Greenland! So apologies for the brief blog post this month - it's been pretty hectic. Once I've had a bit of time to sift through them all, I'll have photos to share of ice, sea, and more ice!
