Photobombing sheep raises the baah for landscape photographer


THIS is the moment an intrepid sheep photobombed what was set to be a stunning landscape photograph.

Katherine Fotheringham, 37, was perched on a rocky outcrop called John Knox’s Pulpit, about to capture the beauty of the Lomond Hills, Fife.

Exquisite composition, light bursting through the clouds…and then a sheep appears


Just as the sun burst through the thick clouds and she took the “perfect” snap on the 1,500ft peak, a ewe appeared from nowhere.

Katherine, from Skene, Fife, said: “We were quite high up. It just stuck its head around as I took the picture, it was quite funny at the time.”

The picture was uploaded to social media with the caption “Thank ewe!”.

It has attracted hundreds of likes and comments from people who couldn’t resist turning the photo into a pun.

Jean Bradley wrote: “How did ewe get away up there.”

John Campbell added: “What are ewe doing here.”

Ian McKellar joked: “Photobombing with style.”


  1. TELEGRAPH got it wrong…sheep with horns are not necessarily male…tups Scotland Rams England Not welcome by breeders,certainly the remains of the fleece gets minus points!; this mule or Cross ewe or hogg takes its horns as a throwback to the mother being a Blackface (all have horns but those of the tups are most distinctive and when not heated make the head of a good shepherds crook…stick (Father would be a Blueface Leicester but no horns)
