Beautiful scene and capture, Christopher! My only suggestion is that I would have cropped more of the sky out for a tighter POV. Great shot!

Wow! I just love this scene, Chris! It looks very quaint and majestic at the same time. Good capture with the main sheep looking at the camera in the foreground. The lighting and colors are great, too! I would also like to add that I agree some with Mike P. It might do to take out a little bit of the sky; it tends to overpower the composition a bit. But other than that, it's a wonderful piece of work, Chris!

I stand corrected. A drove, a flock or a herd...

Thanks! But are you picking on my title, Dennis?? ;) I thought it was appropriate---a flock of sheep out in the meadow (there were many more grazing out of frame) to tie in with the concept of the priests at Salisbury, tending to their own flock of worshippers... Clearly, I must have missed the mark with you! ;)

I agree with Susan about the "quaint and majestic at the same time" aspect of this wonderful capture. I love that kind of juxtaposition and when it works as well as this does (re your own flock/shepherd analogy), it's even better. Good to see this in C&C and I hope to see it again next week.

Thank you, Nikki! This has grown to be one of my favorites from my vacation; at first I almost trashed it, thinking no way, to put it on BP, because of the dominant grey sky. But now I really like it.
Always pays to look your images over a few days later, with a fresh mood.

Congratulations on this Finalist. I've been on that spot, but never produced anything as interesting. The sheep make the photo.

This is a beautiful reminder of my teenage years spent in the Salisbury area (Bulford Camp to be exact). Is it the angle of your shot or have they actually straightened the spire? It always used to have a pronounced curve and I understood it was nearly impossible to correct it, but that was many years ago. Love the shot...

Thank you, Elizabeth! They did mention on the tour, the bend in the tower, from settling... And I can remember seeing it, walking around the cathedral; so it probably is this angle that diminishes the appearance. Have a happy New Year!
