Smoke Without Fire

On these dull, cloudy days, I always keep on the lookout for a decent sunset. I had plans to drive down the road to the ewes on this particular evening, but circumstances left me pressed for time and so I had to make do with a flock of ewe lambs. A blessing in disguise, as fog was coming down, making the low sunlight streak through the trees. This, coupled with the chill in the air, created some really nice photography conditions.

I was surprised at how many cobwebs remained on the ground.

This lamb broke one of her back legs some months ago. Now fully healed - a little survivor!

I love sunset colours.

This lamb was very brave.

She came over to see me.

In almost every shot there was some visible breath. Wonderful!

This lamb is sporting the latest in fashion.

Photographer's assistant Sheila:

Nova's lamb.

I drove the quad too close in my enthusiasm and the lambs spooked and ran up the hill.

By the time I joined them again, huddled together, the sun was almost gone.

The clouds over the mountains caught the last of the light.
