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.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

  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.
