Late Light and Sheep along Rutland Water

Late Light and Sheep along Rutland Water

We leave the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, and 2005 for that matter, but we stay in England. While at the British Birding Fair this year, I had precious little time for anything non-work related, but I did get out for an hour or so between the close of the fair and gathering for dinner each day…when the English light is liquid and flows over the landscape like honey.

Okay, a bit much…but it is special light, and when, as on this early evening, the sheep are out on the shore and the clouds are piled over the hills, and the water is blue in the mid-ground it isĀ irresistible. I took way too many pics.
