Photo of the Day: New Zealand Sheep


Dream Trip 2009 keeps building steam! Seven weeks in and we've had nearly 9,000 entries. For inspiration for your own entry and a chance to win a $25,000 vacation to wherever you choose, read our take on a recent eye-catching submission:

Call it a postcard for an insomniac: a flock of 85 (or is it 123?) sheep on a far-flung green hillside under cotton-candy clouds. Dream Trip entrant blandandy caught this image on a farm in New Zealand--so naturally, there's a Lord of the Rings connection.

"The way the sheep all seem to be looking at the camera really adds a humorous element to the photo," writes blandandy in NZ Sheep. "I took this picture on North Island at the Alexander Farm, a working sheep and beef farm that also happens to be the location of the Shire in the movie version of The Lord of the Rings."

Share your travel photos and memories in our 2009 Dream Trip Contest. You could be just a few clicks away from a $25,000 trip to anywhere you choose.
