Photographer's Note

A Blackface ewe and her lamb photographed near Lanark.

Monastery records from the 12th Century tell of the Dun or Blackface sheep which is now the commonest breed of sheep in Britain, with a ewe population of three million, representing 16% of the British pure-bred ewe stock.

The Blackface is one of the most adaptable and hardy breeds and is now the backbone of the Scottish sheep industry.

The Blackface Sheep Breeders' Association was founded in Lanark on 20th August, 1901.

I put "yes" for tripod - or should the top of a fence-post count as a monopod?
