Image caption Ian Dennis took this photo above Berwick St John, near Shaftesbury, Dorset, at 08:00 GMT. He said it is "looking south towards the skyline and ancient Ox Drove (marked by the tree line) which links Shaftsbury to Salisbury. The sheep wandered across the frame in search of their food at the perfect moment."
