Filtered light, St Magnus, Orkney

Light filters through the western window, St Magnus cathedral, Kirkwall, Orkney I’m just back from a few days on the Orkney Islands, part of a wonderful trip with master dowser Michele Fitzgerald. I’ve learnt a lot in just a few days, and if you are serious about consciousness, health, and personal transformation, I can thoroughly […]

Myriad reflections


Myriad Reflections, Craigellachie Lochan, Craigellachie National Nature Reserve, Aviemore The birch trees on the lochan’s edge were just coming into leaf.  Although it was an overcast day the sun was showing enough to create a bright spot which combined with the size of the ripples to create this multitude of fragmented reflections. “He showed me […]

Glenfeshie Hills from Ord Ban

Glenfeshie Hills

Glenfeshie Hills from Ord Ban, Strathspey Winter refuses to give up… our cold spring continues with a weekend of sleet showers (and sunshine) and a biting wind.  A lot of snow has melted in this last fortnight, but there was fresh snow on the hills again.  Although it was cold up on the hilltop, it […]

Blue Anenome

Blue Anenome I love how this flower shifts colour depending on the light, from blue to purple, and I love the combination of the velvety purple with the shimmering golden stamens.  It just seems to glow with these deeply nourishing high-vibration colours.  Here’s a meditation on colour and light … focus and breathe these colours […]

The Perfect Mirror

Ice and branch, Loch an Eilein Thankfully it has been a much warmer weekend after the severely cold start – Spring may be properly on her way at last. Here though is another image from the  icy days at Loch an Eilein a couple of weeks ago.  Overnight ice held within a floating branch. Reflection, […]

Sun and Ice

Sun and Ice, Loch an Eilein Its been an amazing week with temperatures down to -10C most nights, and some clear blue days.  Its warm in the sun, and bitter in the shade or when the wind blows!  The ice forms overnight on the loch, then breaks up under the sun and wind during the […]

Sound of Luing

Rock outcrops and distant Argyll landscape, Sound of Luing, West Coast of Scotland I find it bizarre that, as snow covers the UK, here in my part of the Highlands there is hardly any, just an occasional snowflake – although it has been bitterly cold.  As an alternative to this week’s big freeze, here’s an […]

Loch Vaa Reflection

A moment of reflection at Loch Vaa, Strathspey Its been a very dull week – snow, sleet, rain, dark cloud… This weekend especially has been rather dreich with heavy rain down here, although snowing on the hills…  However, the walk around Loch Vaa was very peaceful, with a multitude of reflections.  I find the colours […]

Torr Alvie

Cairngorms from Torr Alvie, Strathspey The Glenfeshie hills from Torr Alvie, Kinrara, Strathspey.  This was taken a couple of weeks ago in the sunshine, before the latest batch of wintry weather swept in – last week’s crocuses are now under snow.  Torr Alvie is a steep little hill, covered in native Caledonian Forest – an […]


Crocus flower and leaves Its spring – the sun has shone all week and although its still very chilly at times, there has been some real warmth.  Crocus bulbs have shot up all over the garden, and the first few are in flower.  I was trying to do something a bit different from the straight […]

Moss Baubles

Ice baubles on moss Its been an amazing week of high-pressure weather, with blue skies nearly every day.  Some days with warm sun tempting us to think that its spring, other days with a biting wind and deep frost…  There isn’t a great deal of snow on the slopes, but the high plateau looks plastered, […]

Riverbank branches

Riverbank branches, River Spey Following on from last week’s image – more riverbank branches with sparkly light, full of elemental magic. This week’s quote – staying with what is. “When things are shaky and nothing is working, we might realize that we are on the verge of something. We might realize that this is a […]
