Who says …

… nothing much happens around here.  This bucolic scene suggests all is peace and tranquility at Beaufront Woodhead this morning:

Idle sheep

However, start messing around with time lapse and an altogether more frantic world becomes apparent:

I suffer for my ‘art’ 🙂  I had noticed that the sheep gather under these trees overnight and then disperse for the rest of the day so I had to be up ‘early’.  Perhaps they would stay longer but for the arrival of the those big bruisers.

    The time lapse seems familiar……Oh, yes the NYC subways! That’s it.

    Those cows could scare me away, too.

      I was too busy mucking around with the time lapse to join them 🙂

    Good to know that you actually suffer for your art, Robin :))
    Lovely images and I also love the time lapse!

    Have a great week!

    Love the video-looks like just another day under the big tree for everyone-I feel your pain too-I am not a morning person so getting up to get the shot is appreciated 🙂

      Many thanks Meg – of course ‘early’ is relative so I won’t share my definition – some might consider it late in the day 😉

    Peace and tranquility, what is better!

      Exactly – we are very lucky living in rural Northumberland. Sometimes we take it for granted.
