Admiration: the indomitable sheep

This picture expresses my admiration for the indomitable sheep of the Carrick Hills, who endure the ever-changing, unrelenting climate of the west coast of Scotland. They looked like they were standing proud after a great battle on Saturday.thumb_IMG_2978_1024



Trio: the three sisters

This is a set of mountain ranges in the Blue Mountains in Sydney called the three sisters. Apparently there is a dream time story that says that three sisters were turned two stone to protect them from being kidnapped by a neighbouring tribe of men who wanted to marry them. The myth is probably made up – if that makes sense! Very lovely landscape and views. I always remember the lady who came on our trek across the mountains wearing sandals with flight socks!
