Sheep and Volcanoes by FlorentCourty Sheep and Volcanoes by FlorentCourty
That's what you can see if you do some summer walk in my region : a huge herd of fluffy sheep grazing on our french volcanoes ( La Chaîne des Puys ).
This late june sunset was quite the perfect moment to capture them and the silhouette of volcanoes in the background, with a beautiful warm light and a nice display of clouds.

It's a wonderful landscape, even if the sheep seem indifferent to it!

Much like the lemming migrations of ancient Lemuria, not many scientists are aware of the trans-yearly sheep migrations to the mysterious volcano of Mooga Mooga. As the younger, stronger sheep gently nudge their weaker brethren into the simmering volcanic pits, this, as always, serves the process of natural selection and keeps the flock strong

Woah, that's so cool!  It's hard to imagine this is a photo, because all the sheep are collected perfectly, and the sun just shines on their wool and the grass beautifully! :D
