Brooding clouds and reflections, Loch an Eilein, Rothiemurchus. Black and white, quadtoned.
Its been a good week with some lovely spring moments. This was taken on a bike ride around Loch an Eilein one late afternoon. I was hoping that the sun would burst through the dark clouds for some contrast, but it didn’t happen that way. These reflections of the forest edge had great atmosphere, though.
Its the spring equinox this week and I’m very much looking forwards to the longer days. The bulbs in my garden are very confused – the crocuses are in flower, the first daffodil is out today, tulips are almost in flower (a month early), while the snowdrops which should have finished flowering by now are not even thinking about it yet. I’ll just enjoy the colour.
“It is as if when you let go of the emotion that surrounds your life, then life itself moves inside your heart, rather than events seeming to exist outside of you. It is as if you become bigger than life, rather than living in the feeling that life is outside of you and that you are at the mercy of circumstances. The first step to internalising reality is, of course, to take absoute responsibility for yourself and the events of your life. Doing so, you enter into an intimate relationship with the symbology of your life, and you are able to identify how that symbology relates to some inner feeling you hold.”
