Findhorn Fall

Autumn Colour in the Findhorn Gorge Randolph’s Leap, on the gorge of the River Findhorn.  The wooded hillside down to the gorge is mostly Beech, but there are some mighty spruce and cedar, which bring in an incredible energy and presence.  You feel it from the road as soon as you drive through.  Just being […]

Findhorn Beach at Sunset

Findhorn Beach at sunset, the Moray Firth. While the far southwest of England continued to be battered by storms, the last week was mostly very calm and bright here in the North.  This was sunset at Findhorn beach, close by the Findhorn community.  The beach faces North, but the clouds were reflecting the orange sunset […]

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 […]

Life’s a Beach

Sunshine and clouds, Findhorn Beach, the Moray coast It poured all day on Midsummer’s day and its been a chilly week, but yesterday was summertime at Findhorn beach.  Well, it was warm enough not to need a jacket all the time…  I loved the expanse of sea and sky with the cloudscape. “A friend is […]

Rock in the flow

A Rock in the flow, River Findhorn. Autumn really started to show her colours this week, with the birch woods turning gold, and a  touch of fresh snow on the hills on thursday as well. This is at Randolph’s Leap on the River Findhorn.  The day was so gloomy and dark but it allowed me […]

Randolph’s Leap

Spring woods, Randolph’s Leap, River Findhorn I love the freshness and light in this image, the Beech leaves have an extra glow to them in spring! “The criteria for success: you are free, you live in the present moment, you are useful to the people around you, and you feel love for all humanity.” – […]

Randolph’s Leap

Randolph’s Leap, River Findhorn Gorge. Rays of sun filtering down through the freezing mist hanging above the river, last weekend. I find Randolph’s Leap, and the Findhorn gorge in general, to have a real magical quality, from the woods and the energy of the river. The river as a symbol of life’s journey must be […]

Winter Birch

Winter Birch. The upper Findhorn valley, near Tomatin, on a day of cold winds and a flurry of snow on the tops. This week has seen a constant cycle of rain and a few snow flurries, followed by frost, leaving everywhere covered in a layer of ice! I liked how the tree and grasses caught […]

Findhorn Gorge

River Findhorn gorge at Randolph’s Leap on a day of perfect sunshine and sparkle. The Findhorn is naturally dark-coloured by the peaty waters from the Monadliath mountains.  I find the gorge and surrounding forests a very energising place full of natural magic.  About 10 miles below the gorge the Findhorn reaches the sea at Findhorn […]

Findhorn Beech

Beech tree, River Findhorn gorge, Scotland.  The Findhorn rises in the Monadliath mountains near to my home, and enters an impressive gorge. “… the very process of restoring the land to health is the process through which we become attuned to Nature and, through Nature, to ourselves. Restoration, therefore, is both the means and the […]
