JahnG: The preferred age of the photographs is one year, fair enough. One problem is that the "social distancing" of the pandemic started one year ago, so people havent't perhaps taken so much "sheep pictures", but let's hope for the best.
(Personally I was only able to take pictures further away from home January - February 2020, mostly winter pictures. And after that only in nearby areas during walks, with no sheep)
Anyway, an interesting challenge, hopefully we will see much sheep, (but hopefully not fall asleep when counting them :) :)

i know jahng, which is why i said i would prefer newer photos...

embie: Sheep, no goats please...hilarious :):):)
Maybe provide a link to Wikipedia for those who don't know the difference ?
BTW, love those additional rules.

honestly, it's sometimes really difficult to tell the difference...apparently it's all about the ears ! thanks for your lovely pair. they look like typical ugly belgian sheep - never seen such ugly animals as around here !!!

embie: Was expecting a much higher score !
Magnificent action shot and well suiting in this challenge.
My favorite car for decades... in my heart but my mind keeps saying now :(

saw it was you hosting the challenge so went hunting for a shot... that jeep thing was a truly hair raising experience. the climb was as near vertical as is possible. thank god i wasn't driving ! the jeep was extra special and cost nearly 200,000 usd apparently. the driver stopped it on that climb and then as he restarted deliberately let it roll backwards suddenly...something to do with expensive gear system

In reply to:

Schrodingers_cat: This is one of those photos where I wish I had more information :). Very intriguing.

It's a 'bit of a cheat', in that it's one of the artisanal show gardens at Chelsea Flower Show in London. There are some amazing gardens and displays that exist for 1 week only
