A Favourite Photo

Obviously, this is not a dedicated photography blog. I follow many of those, and love to see the outstanding images that people create with their cameras, and sometimes enhance and improve using Photoshop, or Lightroom. I do like taking photos though, as regular readers will know, having seen the many photo posts I have published before. I spent some time last night looking back at every image I have posted here, those stored in my WordPress Media Library.

Many are of Ollie, some of historical sites, seaside locations, or records of trips to places around the UK. I thought long and hard about those I liked best, and surprised myself when I settled on this one. Only a ten-minute walk from the house, on Hoe Rough, a place I go almost every day of the year. The weather is perhaps my least favourite, snow, and the subject of sheep is far from interesting or original.

But I really like it.

    1. Thanks, Theo. I had just this one shot, while a few sheep were looking at me. It was still snowing hard, so I got that unintended ‘blur’ that really makes this photo for me. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.


  1. It’s a really nice image, Pete I studied photography for years but have gotten rather lazy with it. I always had my favorite images and they were seldom the same images my instructors preferred. I like this one. It takes a minute to settle into, to decide what I am seeing. I was always told that a good photo holds the eye of the viewer. This one really meets that criteria. I think it would make a nice Christmas card.

    1. Thanks, Maggie. I like the way the falling snow has blurred the image slightly, and some of the sheep are looking directly at me. I never alter images with post-processing software, so this was one-shot, ordinary fine jpeg, and straight off the memory card.
      Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, FR. It was taken in a ‘blizzard’, and it had been snowing for days previously. I reckon I ‘got lucky’! πŸ™‚
      I chould have moved the composition slightly, to show all of the animal on the extreme right. But a big ugly bush was right next to it.
      Best wishes, Pete.
