Sheep Saturday

Not so much for the sheep, but for that Mendip dry-stone wall. I wonder how it stands up. Taken from a distance, so not as defined as I would like to to be

That is a beautiful shot. I like the muted colours.
Lisl: Thank you, Michael. As the year quietens down..............

The bucolia is almost overpowering, Lisl...even from a distance.
Lisl: A little different from the hot Thai countryside, Ray

I guess it stays up because it is quite a thick structure Lisl
Lisl: I expect you are right, Chris - this was taken near Hazel Manor

an image of contentness and peace - the drystone wall seems to be very old, maybe, it needs some restoration.
Lisl: A job that probably won't be done, Philine - there are miles of wall like this up in the Mendip Hills
The wall is interesting as the stones are so straight edged. The sheep look happy to be gathering fuel.
Lisl: Stoking up on a very cold day, Mary

This wall is interesting,- the right side is closely compacted and seemingly original, as is the left side.The centre seems'looser' and less carefully constructed. A later repair perhaps.(A comparative study of sheeps bottoms !).
Lisl: It's obviously been patched up at some time. Chris thinks it is standing well as it will be so thick
A delightful rural image Lisl. Strange how the style of stone walls is different all over the country isn't it.

I think over the years some of those naughty sheep have been trying to do the Fosbury Flop and getting it wrong. The sheep don't look as though they have ever gone hungry.
