Sheep at sunset, October 2015

Christopher Thomond

£50.00

There are many reasons why this photograph, taken at Stoke Prior in Herefordshire, is so terrific. One is the light: the setting sun illuminates the trees, clad in their autumn colours, which contrast against the darkening sky as a storm looms. The Kerry Hill sheep are cast in shadow, but their coats – and distinctive panda eyes and black noses – appear to pop out of the photograph. The picture also has an elegant linear form, with three clear horizontal sections: the sky takes up half the shot, followed by the bank of trees, and the sheep huddled at the bottom. And, in between, is a winding path that the eye follows almost to the horizon.
