Weekly Photo Challenge – Monochromatic


Old Sheep Pens.

Not strictly monochrome….but I think fits the theme of Monochromatic….

and I feel also fits the mood of this remote location.


These Old Sheep pens are high up on the Howden Moors at the top of the Derwent Valley in Derbyshire. They are from the days when the numbers of sheep grazing these moors was much higher.  Now in more enlightened times, which recognise the damage of over grazing, the numbers have been drastically reduced.  The pens remain.
