    These young rams were totally unconcerned about the steepness of their route past me.

    The diagonal formed by the hillside makes for a powerful composition. The slight upward camera angle portrays height. The distant hillside provides a clean, uncluttered background. The rams really pop in this image as a result.

    Equipment used:
    Nikon D1X camera
    80-200mm VR lens
    1/250 sec at F7.1

    My stomach hurts and I may throw up just looking at it.
    When I was young I really liked the thrill and adrenalin rush of heights but all of my adrenalin is long gone and all I have left is a weak stomach.
