Friday 17 February 2012: Wet & Wooly Wales
I am visiting the celebrated blipper Ceridwen in Pembrokeshire. Although I took a good number of blippable shots on our walk to the harbor and back, I decided this would do best because the overcast sky and drizzle helps to capture the scene rather than hindering.
This is a view of Ceridwen's house from the North. The adjacent field serves to graze a flock of the neighboring farmer's "tack sheep," which means that they belong to some other farmer and are here for the winter. The fields they live on in summer are in a location that becomes harder to deal with at this time of year. It could be a long distance or just up in the nearby hills, but in either case the moving of the sheep from one to the other is called transhumance. The practice of doing this by walking the herd along roads has disappeared from most of Wales but it is still done here, as in most parts, by truck.
I chose this shot also because this is what one typically sees while walking around this area, and I am very pleased to be back!
