Sheep, Scotland

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features Tangles of seaweed lure a flock of sheep from Iona's green slopes down to the beach for a mineral-rich graze. In Gaelic this stretch of coast is called Camas Cùil an t-Sàimh, the "bay at the back of the ocean." See more photographs from the January 2010 feature story "Edge of the World."
