Smashing day spent hanging out with the Herdwicks at Borrowdale Shepherds’ Meet in Cumbria. . . The Herdwick is unique to the Lakeland fells - the lambs are born black and over the first 6 months the colour changes to brown with the grey beginning to show after the first shearing. Herdwicks become a lighter and lighter grey each year. . . #tessabunney#cumbria#borrowdale#herdwick#sheep
Lovely morning at @yspsculpture with Wakefield’s Labour MP Mary Creagh creating my contribution to @209women with backdrop of work by fantastic female sculptors including Elisabeth Frink. . Mary is currently Chair of the Commons Environmental Audit Select Committee. . Thank you to Kerry for the behind the scenes shot! . Please follow @209women#209women
Finally made it up to @sidegallery1977 to see the About the North exhibition. So chuffed to see my work up there amongst some truly wonderful images from some brilliant photographers! The exhibition is on until Sunday, open 10 to 6 #getnorth2018 . . This image: Gouthwaite Farm, 2002 from the series Moor and Dale commissioned by Nidderdale AONB.
Today is a very exciting day. After working from home for 27 years I’m moving out to a studio space in #saltburnbythesea . . This is where I’ll be hanging out when I’m not out taking pictures elsewhere. Thank you to @heyhoprintco for making this happen and here’s the view at the end of the road!!
The wonderful Margaret Owen, the only woman in the UK licensed to use a ‘haaf net’ for catching salmon. . For 27 years she has been standing waist deep in the river Lune, 4 hours a day twice a day during the 3 month salmon fishing season. . “Salmon run upstream on the filling tide and turn back when they meet the fresh water of the river and you stand in the run to catch them.” . Margaret is currently campaigning to be able to continue this traditional fishing method following threats of a ban by The Environment Agency. . #tessabunney#lancashire#sunderlandpoint#haafnetting#salmonfishing#lune
