‘High Noon’ on the Great Orme


This was the scene yesterday on the (wild) western slopes of the Great Orme, it appeared these two separate herds of goats were having a dispute over territory.

Somewhat reminiscent, in a goat way of course, of the movie ‘High Noon’. I can just hear Marshal Will Kane (Gary Cooper) saying his famous line, “Don’t shove me Harv. I’m tired of being shoved”.



  1. Crunch time,in more ways than one! That’s a blue,blue sky too. Well spotted.

  2. I find this wonderfully amusing. Perhaps you’re right and they’re disputing things. Or, they might merely be discussing where on the mountain to have lunch! 🙂

  3. 2 against 8 dont fancy them odds!!,wateva the outcome that blue sky looks unbelievable.fab photo geoff.

  4. I see a showdown coming.

  5. how cool to just see these guys roaming freely!

  6. What a lovely blue sky!

  7. Oh, I bet the confrontation was interesting to watch!

  8. I love it! It’s very tempting to put speech bubbles on this photo :-), like “This is crazy, I don’t even have any guns.” and “Don’t try to be a hero! You don’t have to be a hero, not for me!” and “Go on home to your kids, Herb.” and ” I knew you had guts but I never figured you for brains. It takes a pretty smart man to know when to back away.” What a fun photo!

  9. A cute shot! Looks a bit precarious for the goats though!

  10. No gunfight?! 🙂 That’s a lot of goats!

  11. Now I want to watch the film! I’m also picturing those goats jostling along the cliff, getting ready for their own showdown:)

  12. I like the layers of your photo. I love the goats, they’re such a part of things around you it seems. And I recommend “High Noon” to those who haven’t seen it; it is the epitome of the Western–in a good way. Cooper’s finest.
