15 Minutes Old

I was out following a storm and saw a beautiful sloping field dotted with sheep under one of the storm front clouds. I stopped to ask the farmer if I could go into his field and shoot his sheep. He went into the barn to turn off the electric fence and came out asking if I’d like to snap a photo of a lamb being born.

This was the first moment the lamb raised its head.
