Another example of the hills of Eastern Macedonia looking like Vermont on steroids. I was out for a long walk and ran into this flock with, yes a shepherd in old ratty leather clothes who probably had a wind instrument in his shoulder bag. I loved seeing how this band of white changed as the flock moved across the hills; a white mark moving across the very dark green ground. I had to be careful not to come too close as sheep guard dogs are truly guard dogs.
