Icy sunset silhouette on frozen Loch Vaa The setting sun projected its rays onto the icy surface of Loch Vaa, before an atmospheric walk home in the growing dark. The way goes through a mysterious woodland, low-hanging branches thick with mosses, seemingly meaningful ancient stones, and occasional wandering cattle which overwinter in the shelter of […]
Midwinter sunset at Clava Cairns, near Inverness Solstice greetings! I’m repeating myself, as this image was taken a full 10 years ago and I used an image from this day in a post from that time. Circles within circles of universal time, as the cairns of Clava symbolise. Although I’ve certainly developed as a photographer […]

Rare, sparkling days that illuminate the gloom of a Scottish December. Sunset comes mid-afternoon, but beautiful sunsets with rich, warm rays striking horizontally for a graphic effect; cold air contracting into […]

Continuing my annual quest to get the waterlily image that I’m after in my head
From a sparkling day in early summer when all the leaves are fresh and brand new. These two giant-sized fir stand guard near the banks of the Findhorn Gorge and have an amazing uplifting energy.
Birch leaves – Its always a joy to see the transformation over a few days from coppery winter branches to the bright yellow-green of the new leaves.
The sun sets behind the Monadhliath mountains in the distance, through the branches of a lonesome pine, high above the main treeline.
