[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Hill of Tara (Irish Teamhair na Rí, "Hill of the Kings"), located near the River Boyne, is an archaeological complex that runs between Navan and Dunshaughlin in County Meath, Leinster, Ireland. It contains a number of ancient monuments, and, according to tradition, was the seat of Árd Rí na hÉireann, or the High King of Ireland.

Recent scholarship claims that despite the rich narratives derived from mythologies, Tara was not so much a true seat of kingship, but a sacral site associated with kingship rituals.

A fine model! Looks as if hair brushed specially and those ears.....
Very atmospheric shot! I like the light and the composition... It is difficult getting a good tone when there are very bright areas and darker ones too. Good job.

Hi Jim,
The dramatic sky and the funny pose of the sheep creates a fine image. Excellnt contrast and the low light is superb.

Bonjour James.
Une image instantanée qui montre une scène insolite avec ce mouton dans cette météo incertaine.
Une belle atmosphère obtenue grave a une bonne exposition.
Bonne journée.

Hello James,

The drama of this shot can be felt even on the thumbnail! The light is mysterious and wholly appropriate.
The curious, focal sheep is perfectly placed in the frame, whilst the second focal, stone posts continue the theme of mystery.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)
