Thanks Woodzy. The farmer puts a coloured dye on their back so that he knows which are his and which aren't. He can't brand them like cattle cos of the wool and this is easy.

Hey, Woodzy - farmers also put dye on the Ram's chest so when the ewe is mounted, they get a mark. So you sure gotta be careful when tying your laces up these yonder, wild hills!

Hmmm, that is interesting. I guess you don't learn those things growing up in Southern California. But they do add a cool atmosphere to the picture!

...Andy, this shot is worthy of an award. I would vote a "10" for it, but I would probably bring your score down because my "weight" is so low! The image evokes emotions of pensiveness and that's what photography is all about!

Kendog that was a point and shoot shot. It was the way it was. Wet, muddy and cold (Jan 2008). Very pleased with the way it came out. Sometimes I get tired of the classic blue sky etc. More charater and reality with cloud!! That's mostly all we get here anyway!!!! Thanks for the comment.

Your self-deprecation will get you nowhere, my good man. This shot shows evidence of compositional training...sure the elements may have been happenstance, but it takes a keen eye to arrange them in an artistic Gestalt!

Sounds good to me Kendog!!!! No training just love photography. Sometimes you get a good one or two out of a batch!! I reckon this was one.

And concerning point and shoot, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. However, ken is right about the ability to compose, even if the camera is talking care of the other variables.

Sometimes, even the inevitable Welsh overburden of cloud makes an emotive scene.

It was quite an intimidating scene after getting lost and the light failing.
