Watership Down with Sheep
The white dots on the side of the down are - like it says in the title - sheep. Very far away sheep.
This was a new vantage point, in a field near Nuthanger Farm. I wanted to get higher up than last time - which necessitated being further away - and to see the down full on, rather at an angle. I'm not, however, convinced that it's as attractive a view as the one painted from the valley floor. The lack of sunshine might make a huge difference, though...
