Awesome photo! Love the rolling horizon and that big sweeping cloud on the right. I am enjoying the white & blue sheep mimicking the white clouds in a blue sky...add in the earthy browns & greens and you have a delightfully colored photo with incredible subject matter!😄
Cheers...Donna 😊

Thank you ever so much for your encouraging feedback! So glad that you noticed the white and blue sheep's echoing of the sky's tones and shapes. I was smiling like a cheshire cat when I saw that potential in addition to the fascinating lenticular cloud. A wonderful moment to gaze upon a great sky in such a location

Thanks very much Drobbia, Paris Salon... wow! Thank you ever so much! I am rather fond of the realist landscape paintings made by Peder Mørk Mønsted, maybe there was some subconscious influence

The cloud formation is certainly an important element in this shot. It's a beauty Phil.

Thanks very much indeed Paul. The white and blue sheep, the sweep of low-angle sunlit hillside, the dip in the hills below the lenticular base...

It all just seemed to work together at that very moment - to make something I found to be a quietly graceful way to respond to the sky, light and land before me.
