Context Lost

Taking close up photos of images is fun to do. You capture detail that might otherwise go unnoticed. Sometimes, though, you lose the context. That was the case with this photo.

These rams were grazing next to the ladies tee box on the 16th hole of the Palmer course. They didn't budge when we approached. My error was going for the close up, the ram detail without regard to where they were grazing. I was very focused on framing the shot. Nothing in the image allows the viewer to see the whole story. My error. My bad! I am reminded that it is important to consider context when snapping the image. Details of all type abound.
