  5. it reminds me of trekking in Nepal where the sheep flooded the footpaths seemingly of one mind. great picture!

    13/06/2012 at 7:10 pm

    • Never been in Nepal, it is the north of Spain, near the pirinees mountains, not too many people live there anymore.

      Wish I will go to Nepal one day!

  8. Beautiful Picture. The sheep in the center with its head turned to the left appears to me to be smiling for the camers πŸ™‚

      thank you for your comment Katie!

      16/06/2012 at 6:19 am

  10. Terrific shot! Such local color but most of all, you’ve captured a whole range of feeling in the shepherd’s expression and even among the sheep. I love it. Mil gracias!

    13/06/2012 at 8:11 pm

    • gracias Alegria!

      I think the shephard is thinking “crazy tourists!” haha!

    13/06/2012 at 11:50 pm

  24. Beautiful photo. I always find it’s the simple things in life, like this man herding his sheep, that really make great photos!

    14/06/2012 at 1:01 am

    • thank you! I agree with you…it is also very soothing to look at this kind of pictures, relaxing!

      Muchas gracias for the comment!

      16/06/2012 at 7:54 am

  25. Nice. What are those green things in their ears?

    14/06/2012 at 1:23 am

    • Good eye! I think they are for keeping record of the ship…

      16/06/2012 at 7:57 am

  26. Love the picture, it speaks volumes to me as a fellow shepherdess. Think of all the thoughts of the flock and personalities that the shepherd is confronted with during the move. “Movin”

    14/06/2012 at 1:34 am

    • Thank you Sjgarver,

      I hadnt thought about the thoughts of the flock and their personalities…it opens new dimensions to the image!!! Thank you so much!

      16/06/2012 at 2:49 pm

  27. I enjoyed your blog, cheers.

    14/06/2012 at 2:58 am

  28. I love the one different looking sheep in the back, and the man’s face πŸ™‚

    14/06/2012 at 2:58 am

    • the mans face πŸ˜€ THere was also a black dog, I think it is behind the sheep…a pity I didnt captured it 😦

      Muchas gracias Cafe.

      16/06/2012 at 3:03 pm

      • Aww the photo still turned out great πŸ™‚

    Wow, so many goats.
    Nice pic.

    14/06/2012 at 5:06 am

  35. I think it takes a minute to really appreciate this picture. At quick glance it’s easy to take it for granted, but at closer look there is so much depth and emotion. It is clear that a shepherd’s work isn’t easy. Moving picture, worth a second look…

    14/06/2012 at 5:11 am

    • thank you Greg, sometimes you need to look at the picture a year after…as in this case!

      Muchas gracias!

      16/06/2012 at 3:18 pm

  36. So ironic…I just watched a documentary last night about sheep herding in Montana..and now this photo pops up! It’s my dream to be shepherdess one day πŸ˜‰ this just feeds that weird dream.

    14/06/2012 at 5:12 am

    • Looks like a plan to me, I might join you guys!

  37. A Table in the Sun

    I love rural scenes. So pure.

    14/06/2012 at 5:27 am

  38. Good Evening: It’s not hard to figure out why this is such a good shot–almost all of the animals are looking directly at the camera. The way the heads line up in columns on the left hand side is very pleasing, as is the sort of triangle formation in the middle.

    14/06/2012 at 7:56 am

    • thank you Scott! I was going with my father in the car and when I saw them I had to get out and shoot them from the front.

  46. Hermano Jaguarod,

    I enjoyed your play on words and photo. I wonder, did you plan the title and then look for a photo? Or, did you find the photo and then plan the title?

    Again, me gusta.


    14/06/2012 at 12:38 pm

    • first the photo, then the picture.

      Sometimes it takes me so long to think about a title…

      thank you for your comment Wayne!

      16/06/2012 at 8:06 am

  47. Really great images. Teach others and add some tags on it dude.

    14/06/2012 at 2:37 pm

    • πŸ˜€ It wouldnt be unfair that they do this to us as well…

      16/06/2012 at 8:03 am

  50. EXCELLENT COMPOSITION! Just something about a large herd … of ANYTHING … is simply mesmorizing to watch!

    14/06/2012 at 5:31 pm

  51. Wow! I really appreciate the black and white sheep near the back!

    14/06/2012 at 6:05 pm

  52. This photograph reminds me of a trip I took to Scotland a few year ago.

    OMG. I’m a fiber junkie. All I could think of when I saw this is “MORE FLEECE!!! I”LL FIND ROOM, I SWEAR IT WITH GOD AS MY WITNESS!!”

    14/06/2012 at 7:36 pm

  54. That is a significant number of sheep; impressive.

    14/06/2012 at 8:29 pm

  55. Oh, the faces in the crowd. Amusingly, ironic.

    14/06/2012 at 9:05 pm

  56. sheeeeple and the shepherd XD

    14/06/2012 at 9:43 pm


    14/06/2012 at 11:49 pm

  58. Fantastic! I was hoping this would happen to me when I was in Ireland a couple years ago. Sadly, only 2-3 sheep passed in front of me at a time.

    15/06/2012 at 12:28 am

    15/06/2012 at 6:52 pm

    • In the pyrinees!Mountains in North of Spain!

      16/06/2012 at 3:45 pm

      • Near what town, do you know? Our grandmother was from St. Etienne de Baigorry which is 8 kilometers from Spanish border. We own land there. And my aunt’s family is from Pamplona and Jurieta.

  68. It’s nice how so many of the sheep are looking directly into the camera πŸ™‚

    19/06/2012 at 10:31 am

  69. I rather enjoy how almost all of the sheep turn to look at the photographer — sheeps are such followers, jajajaja.

    26/06/2012 at 1:55 am

  70. Beautiful photo and well captured,The sheep in the 2nd row looks like its giving a peck to the other sheep.!:)
