19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Abandoned Cottage-Black Valley, Kerry Ireland

'Abandoned Cottage Ireland' Sheep graze in the Black Valley hills of Kerry County Ireland near an age-old abandoned cottage. While exploring the remote farming areas of the Black Valley in Kerry County I found myself surrounded by hundreds of sheep grazing in the lush green hills. I stopped my vehicle in the the two-track just below this an cottage, set up my tripod and waited for these two curious sheep to walk into my frame. The clouds parted momentarily and the light exposed key elements of the scene to complete the magic of this special capture.
