OUTLANDS 4 – BESIDE THE ROAD IN WEST LITTLETON

Later on the same day (see context here),  I drove southwards into South Gloucestershire, and a side road – Rushmead Lane –  led me down into the little village of West Littleton.  Opposite Home Farm, several sheep were grazing on a little roped-off area of grass beside the road.  They looked at me, I looked at them.  And then I made very soft clicking and whispering noises and, their curiosity aroused, they came for a closer look.

Earlier images from this day can be found here and here.

  2. It’s a beautiful sheep.
    I took sheep pictures with my new camera two days ago when I went at my brother’s home.
    I also took with mine when I came back at my home.

      Thank you! The X-T1 does well for things that are not moving or, at least, are not moving rapidly or frenetically, and I’m continually impressed with this image-stabilised 55-200 lens. And of course, being a smaller than full frame sensor (APS-C = Nikon’s DX format), the relative depths of focus are increased. So at 305mm this Fuji lens gives more depth of focus than my 300mm Nikkor – I often use the Nikkor at f8, but have read that 300mm APS-C lenses will provide the same DOF at f5.6; this pic was taken above that, at f7.1, and 1/200th.
