Bertha’s Love

"Bertha's Love" - Finalist, Culture. Photographer: Clayton Joe Young. Spring means lambing season in Appalachia, and many farmers are awake into the wee hours tending to their flocks as the young are born. Photographer Clayton Joe Young's touching portrait of "Bertha's Love" is one of 49 finalists in the 2011 Appalachian Mountain Photograhy Competition, currently on exhibit in Boone, N.C.
