3+1 Sheep, Germany

The story behind the image

Here’s a funny shot of four sheep standing next to each other at the top of a dike near St.-Peter-Ording in Northern Germany. All four of them have lifted their head up, and it almost looks like they actually pose for me, the photographer. (They didn’t.)

I like the reduced color set – just blue and green and the natural colors of the sheep. I especially like the first sheep from the left who seems to have a proud look, almost like being the leader of the pack. A nice image for presentations about ‘black sheep’ or ‘being different’.
