Under the shadow of a great oak tree, sheep graze in joyful silence. They do not seem disturbed by passers by and run cheerfully from place to place. Some have had their coats freshly sheared. The paint of man, however, is still smiling from bittersweet pigments on their soft skin. This photo was taken on a sunny day in July at Friars Crag, Keswick.
The caption can be read as “The Praying Sheep” and it was true, since I was at the Orthodox Youth Festival. These green pastures can be found, well, all over England, but this particular one is from the Peak District.
