Sentries of Tradition

On a cold November day, sleet that wants to be snow falls on a pasture high in the mountains of Somiedo, Asturias. This wild corner of Spain, still home to wolves and brown bears, has for centuries been used by shepherds to feed their livestock in summer. Spanish mastiffs, above, guard the flocks against predators, and occasionally use the stone shepherd huts to get out of the rain. Photo ©Mike Randolph

    I have always loved this photo Mike. I am sure the rest of the world would love to hear the story you told me about this photo. Wish I could have been there.

    Thanks Jon. I’ll put it on my list to write about.
