Hebridean Ewe Photo Taken By Sheila

Hebridean Ewe Photo Taken By Sheila

Sheila sent the photo and said, “I am sending a photo taken last April 2009 in Argyll Scotland. I found one of my Hebridean ewes sleeping in the early morning on a white line of the newly marked out shinty pitch, she had 7 acres to pick from! By chance I had my camera.” Sheila, I wonder what she is lining up for? She is a beauty and the landscape is stunning too. Thanks Sheila for sharing this wonderful photograph.
