Scenic Sunday - Sheep Shot

Sunday, November 15, 2009

Today we did some early Christmas shopping. We picked up my wife's mother and let her pick out a Rottweiler puppy at a breeder's. She picked out a cute little female that, I would imagine, will do it's best to eat her out of house and home. After we took Mom back home we passed this sheep farm. This photo was taken in Yelm. In the distance are the Bald Hills.

  1. Sheep always make for a peaceful scene don't they. I wonder why.

    I always want to stop when I see scenes like this, and most of the time I don't. I'm glad you did :) Good luck to Mom with the Rottweiler. I like those big dogs myself, but they do eat a lot!

    It looks wonderfully rural out there in Olympia land

    At first I thought you were going to say you stopped so your mother-in-law could pick out a sheep. :-)

    A Rottweiler, heh? I'll stay clear of her place for sure.

    This is a nice bucolic scene. The only problem is if you get too close you might get sheared.

    Which reminds me to ask, is wool shear the same as wind shear?

    OK. I apologize. I'll go away now.

    Wow, magnificent scenery. A sheep farm would be pretty near impossible to find here and of course your backdrop looks great compared to our flat, hill-less landscape.

    A sweet, "little" Rottweiler puppy...yep, it will probably eat more in a day then she eats in a week.

    Beautiful post!

    Jacob cracks me up. I'm surprised he didn't say something like is it really a sheep shot or maybe a cheap shot! Either way it's a beautiful shot. I hope your mother-in-law enjoys the puppy!

  8. Claudia Says:

    Nice colors!

  9. Hey, I did most of my Christmas shopping yesterday too!!! ;-) No puppies though!
    This shot is lovely, sheep tend to calm me down which is exactly what I need right now!

    What a pastoral scene...I hear you've been getting lots of rain lately...A Rottweiler puppy? Won't be little for long. Hope she knows what she's getting herself into. Hee, hee! Will we see a photo of her soon???

    I've wondered how common it is to see sheep in your country, silly me, I even thought there may be next to none at all but here they are!
