East of England Show 2010 : photos online

The East of England Show 2010 was held on the Showground at Peterborough, over the period 18-20 June 2010.

Over 600 photos from the first day of the Show (Friday 18 June) can now be viewed and purchased  here

I spent most of the day in the sheep section, ending up with plenty of shots of the following breeds, either in their pens or in the show rings (or both):

  • Beltex
  • Charollais
  • Hampshire Down
  • Jacob
  • Kerry Hill
  • Lincoln Longwool
  • Norfolk Horn
  • Shropshire
  • Southdown
  • Suffolk
  • Texel
  • Wensleydale

I did also manage to grap a very few shots of the cattle (mainly the British Charolais).

Compared to the previous weekend at Aberystwyth, the weather was much kinder (both to me, and presumably to the animals too); no chance of sunburn, although it was slightly disappointing that the predicted “one or two passing showers” transpired as a prolonged period of drizzle which lasted most of the afternoon.

Still, I think the photos turned out better in the softer light.
