During his summer and springtime trips to Italy, Polish photographer Marcin Sobas has captured captivating aerial views of Tuscany’s sheep-filled scenery. In the undulating valleys of Siena and Val d’orcia, Sobas trekked across the hills to photograph a shepherd herding his flock of around 300 sheep. In taking snapshots of this moment, we can see the sheep wandering across the vivid green grass as dust appears in their wake.
Using a telescopic lens, the 34-year-old artist shot the pictures from an opposite hill, so that he would not startle the sheep. Even so, this task was not always easy. “It was quite hard sometimes because they moved not where I wanted and it’s not a good idea to come closer to negotiate with them. All of them are guarded by Tuscan dogs that are not always friendly with photographers,” wrote Sobas on BoredPanda.
