Valley of Sheep

Posted on 28 April 2014

New Zealand is ever so often at the wrong end of a myriad of sheep jokes and one could argue rightly so. At first glance this country has a lot of sheep but then the more you look you find it isn't just sheep but cows as well. There are far more sheep than people, I think the official statistic according to Statistics New Zealand there are currently seven sheep per person.

I was on my way to shoot at another spot at One Tree Hill when I drove past this scene. At first I drove past then changed my mind and took the panorama sequence. I like that although the area around One Tree Hill is a working farm the gates are open and you can wander around the pastures, makes for good exercise walking around the steep volcano slopes.
