Autumn Tranquility

Lochan Mor, Rothiemurchus Lochan Mor in the golden hour before sunset, on a perfect early autumn day of complete calm, and incredible clarity of light.  This was a few weeks ago at the end of September – we haven’t had any days like this since!  Its wonderful to experience such colour and clarity, a feeling […]

Waterlilies

Waterlilies on Lochan Mor Its time for the semi-annual foray to see the waterlilies on Lochan Mor (literally – the large-sized small loch… Gaelic place-names are so completely descriptive).  Earlier in the summer the flowers were mostly submerged, after all the constant rain.  Now they’re floating nicely.  I love how the light shines through them […]

Evening Waterlilies

Water Lilies, in evening light. Back to the place of water-lilies, with a rare glint of sun!  I liked the coppery, metallic look of the texture here, with the low evening light. Recognising ourselves: “A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognise it?” […]

Waterlily

At Lochan Mor (otherwise known as The Lily Loch), Rothiemurchus, Strathspey. The water lilies are out again – it seems a little early.  Once again the photographer  ventured in as far as he could – water and fancy lenses don’t mix too well!  The lilies like to be in about 1 metre deep. Photographically speaking, […]
