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 […]
