Sheep On a January Sunrise

I’m quite fond of these few photos and how the morning light highlights and almost outlines the the ewes.  It seems so apt to me that the sun would touch the ewes like that, in its own way of greeting these genial creatures.  
January mornings are cold and yet these scenes have a touch of warmth in them.  The routine here right now is very - well - routine.  It is supremely peaceful in its own right, exemplified by the rare warm weather we are experiencing. 

When life is routine it is easy for it to become mundane or unremarkable and it takes awareness and habit to see it otherwise and be grateful for it.   Taking photos and viewing them later always grants me a new perspective on the place and the animals.
