Snowstorm

Snowstorm, Craigellachie Lochan, Aviemore I’m making no claims that this is a great photo, snapped as it was in an instant before snow clogged the lens, but its great for sharing the atmosphere of the moment.  Snow was piling down, filling the trees, icing up the lochan.  Its good to feel and enjoy the wild […]

Light in the woods

Light in the Strath Dulnain woods, Black & White quadtone I do like playing with the dreamy tones you can get in Black & White 🙂 Evening light coming low through the woods with added emphasis from the dramatic shape of the high wispy cloud.  The woods here are a surviving fragment of our original native […]

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney, in mist. It was a rather misty, chilly day on this visit to the amazing Ring of Brodgar, but the energies around the stones were beautiful.  The ring is classed as a henge and is, for me, at the heart of Orkney, and one of the wonders of the British Isles.  […]

Loch an Eilein

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 […]

Ice patterns

Ice patterns – toned black and white Although I have converted this photo to black and white and given it a toning effect, the colours are not that far off from the original, with warm sunset colours on the blue ice.  I liked the contrast at the edge of the unfrozen pools. We’ve had quite […]

Findhorn Beach

Findhorn Beach, toned black-and-white A photo from the summer, and another experiment in black-and-white toning.  I love how it brings out the clouds above the sweep of the beach. This week’s quote – don’t worry about how things seem! “What we’re beginning to learn is that we are cells in a larger organism. At this […]

Dalfaber Riverbank

Spey riverbank, Dalfaber, Aviemore A sunny break on an autumn day, taking in the flow of the seasons along the riverbank.  Transferred to black & white, then toned. “Spiritual development is not about sitting in a cave and meditating 24/7.  It’s about real people leading dynamic and satisfying lives, and having the tools to help […]

Loch Garten Light

Light on Loch Garten glinting through the trees. Can’t see the wood for the trees?  I liked this one of the intense light on the loch reflecting through the Caledonian Pine forest.  Whatever the weather its a lovely spot for a gentle walk, or just to gaze into the water. “The most beautiful thing we […]

Snowy Birches

Snow covered Birch trees on the banks of the River Spey I thought we’d shift to Black and White for a change, with another image from last January’s amazing depth of snow and deep frost.  You can probably tell by now that I love the grace of the Birch! I appreciated this week’s quote as […]
