Monday Portrait of a Hardly Visible Sheep

We’ve had a lot of misty-moisty mornings lately, and I turned this photo up when looking for soft-focus shots for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This isn’t for that challenge: I just thought this hardy creature deserved her five minutes of fame as a Monday Portrait.

      1. You haven’t met Cornish sheep! They can climb over Cornish hedges, under fences, through pallets! There’s no stopping them – and they have made a right mess of my car park garden ๐Ÿ˜จ

  1. The star of the show is, to my mind, the tree in all its soft focus splendour, but the sheep looks gentle so weโ€™ll forgive her gatecrashing! Tee heeโ€ฆ.I know itโ€™s really all about Mrs Sheep

  2. Love this one Margaret. Every picture tells a story and this shot has numerous potential stories to share. Hope the winds die down soon. All calm down here. Just misty moisty.

  3. It’s been like that here since the middle of last week! Where are the blue skies? I love the soft focus tree and the rather fat sheep (or maybe it is a ram) looking somewhat contemptuous at having her/his photo taken.

    1. No, she’s a ewe alright. Very odd weather here – the sky all kinds of sky-suitable colours, including rainbows. The only constant is the wind.

  4. Perfect shot… the softness of a misty morning and a beautiful sheep. Now that is how I like sheep to be… so natural looking without all those spray colours they wear. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Normally it can be easily done with the clone/heal brush but sometimes they have so much paint on them.. there is not enough fleece to clone from ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Great tree and great sheep! I agree she does not look happy having her photo taken, but still posing nicely! I love that misty look – no fog here though, but windy too.

  6. She looks quite formidable! Misty-moisty is a great description of that sort of morning, there’s been a few of those down here too.

    1. The phrase comes from a poem I knew as a child:
      One misty moisty, morning,
      When cloudy was the weather,
      There I met an old man
      Clothed all in leather.
      Clothed all in leather,
      With a cap under his chin.
      How do you do?
      And how do you do?
      And how do you do again?

      Funny the things you remember .
