Terrific lines and shadows. The size of the sheep really put the image in perspective (if that makes sense?).

A fabulous "shadows" shot. I like how you maintained such fine visibility in the shadowed areas. Very well done.

there are so many things good about this photograph. the long shadows, the bleached out grasses, the animals that look like bugs.
