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."
