Two of Anything: Sheep on the beach

This doesn’t fit the brief as it’s not monochrome, but I wanted to post this image anyway and it has to be seen in colour:

On the beach, South Lewis

More Two of anything at Cee’s here.



  1. I don’t recall ever seeing sheep on a beach. I wonder what they were thinking?
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Gorgeous!! 🙂 It could have been even more south, on South Harris, Lyskentyre! 🙂
    We met many sheep on the various beaches in Scotland. Very friendly, very picturesque. And on a previous trip to Ireland I also met sheep everywhere, including almost any place you’d not expect to meet anyone. It was my first visit to Ireland, I think I returned with more 1000 shots of sheep and lambs. 🙂

      Thanks, Dina! I’ve just had to rescue you from Spam, I thought it was odd that I hadn’t received a reply from you… one day, I am going to look through my slides for the view of the bay, and scan it day!

      • I’m not sure what happened but i thought was rather annoying … I’m in Norway at the moment, using a local wifi. I visited many fellow bloggers, liked and commented on the posts. Because of my extensive travels, I sometimes can’t blog for days and when I have time, I have a lot to catch up with. WP obviously don’t like a blogger to be too active in one session. I know Adrian (Chillbrook) blogged about this topic; “when is enough enough?” After a certain amount of likes yes, it doesn’t work anymore. Yesterday, after a certain amount of comments, something funny happened. I wrote my comment here, posted it and it was swallowed by a big gap, like it went into orbit super fast. I didn’t get the response, “your comment awaits moderation” or “your comment has been posted”. Nothing! I thought it had been deleted or not accepted by WP because I had already written some 40 comments or so. And it was only comments by fellow bloggers that I follow for years, I did not include a link or anything that’s likely to send you to spam. I frequently fish fellow bloggers from spam too, so now I check it every day. Have you maybe experience something similar?

      • Sue

        Yes, I have noticed people sometimes get swallowed up by Spam…so I go off to the rescue!

  3. I like it, Sue, and I think it would lose something in B&W (maybe the sheep.) 🙂


  4. I have seen kangaroos on a beach, but not sheep. I would love to visit Lewis and the rest of the Outer Hebrides, but they are a loooong way from here!

    • Sue

      Yes, the Outer Hebrides are great! We had good weather quite a lot of the time, but sadly it was drizzly at Callanish, the one place I really wanted good light for…such is life. And I’m glad I went when I did, because I most certainly couldn’t do it now

  5. Oh what a rebel you are! But I see why you wanted to use it – lovely shot Sue. I saw cows on the beach in Corsica but sheep are new to me.

  6. Isn’t it a fabulous place? I’d love to get up that way too. And why shouldn’t sheep have a little more than green in their lives? 🙂 🙂

  7. Sue, your two little sheep are so adorable. Great find.

  8. Sheep on the beach? Emus, yes! Kangaroos yes! We keep our sheep in vast paddocks far from the sea. You saw – and you had your camera.

    One of my dreaming destinations for next year en route to guess where?

  9. Oh dear they’ve forgotten their bucket and spades!
