Are they rare? I have no idea I'm afraid. Although now I think about, there are usually animals browsing on the village green, sheep, horses or cows. I suppose it saves on having to mow the grass. The animals close to the village are very tame as they see people all the time, but they scat more easily once you walk a mile or two onto the moors. (Or maybe the tamer animals gravitate towards the village, while the more nervous one avoid it?) We took nephew up there once when he was about two, and before long he'd collected a herd of sheep.

I've no idea either but I found it a lovely sight to see ponies wandering around the villages when i was in your neck of the woods. :D

Yes Knight, belted galloways are quite rare. They are the ones with a white stripe right round their middles.

Finally managed to get out and take a few pics. It's part of Worthing seafront and I was hoping to get a sunset at the water 'conservation' garden here.

The Garden at Sunset.
Image

Unfortunately the cloud moved right across the sun and prevented what had, up until then, been a very promising sundown. My friend and I then resorted to trying long exposure photos with what light we had remaining;

An 'interesting' looking pipe.

Image

This one was taken when I accidentally pressed the shutter.
Image

I decided to take the part of a model and walked into position while the shutter was open for 30 seconds. As a result, I seem to have become transparent. I might try some more experimentation in this direction, especially if I can find and atmospheric dilapidated building (and some fitting clothes to wear).

And finally, one of Worthing Seafront in the failing light.

Love the 'ghost' pictures Penners, I can see you would have a lot of fun doing those.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Beautiful pictures! The first one is my favorite, but I love the ghost pictures too. That would be a really fun project. You could get friends to dress up in period costumes and get some shots at historical sites. Or fairies in the woods! :D

I bookmarked a thesaurus so's I could mix up my adjectives to describe your pics, Penners ;) .

Beauteous! marvelous!

You're not a very scary ghost but the effect is spectral.
