Comments Off on Pictorial – A day in a pasture, up in the mountains
William Blake once wrote,
How sweet is the shepherd’s sweet lot!
From the morn to the evening he strays;
He shall follow his sheep all the day,
And his tongue shall be filled with praise.
For he hears the lambs’ innocent call,
And he hears the ewes’ tender reply;
He is watchful while they are in peace,
For they know when their shepherd is nigh.
Have you been to a pasture? Do you know how shepherds in the mountains live?

The uphill journey
The journey continues
It’s not that easy ….
More paths to travel
Clouds come down covering the amazing shapes
Huge rocks ‘hanging by a tether’!!
The grandeur and the beauty
The shepherds’ hut
So many colours together
The grazing slopes for the sheep, goats and yaks
Camping out ….
View from inside the shepherd’s hut
Le there be light ….
wooden planks erected in the cattle shed. It is covered with tarpaulin during rains
Ba Ba Whit Sheep ….
An open-air cattle pen
