Wintry Braeriach

Braeriach in perfect late winter conditions Conditions on the mountains were quite stunning this week, with deep frost and the most perfect blue skies.  I love this time of year when the days are becoming longer, spring is under way down in the valley, and the mountains are at their best for snow cover.  The […]

Autumn hils and early snow, Cairngorms, Scotland

Autumn Hills

Autumn colours and early snow, Cairngorms, from Torr Alvie An image from this week last year, on a day of sunshine and frost with the larch glowing bright orange across Rothiemurchus, and early winter snow on the Cairngorms behind.  The photo is taken from the mysterious wee hill of Torr Alvie, which is covered in […]

Loch Morlich Sunset

Loch Morlich Sunset

Sunset, Loch Morlich, Cairngorms National Park We’ve had some fabulous early spring days, misty-hazy days of surprising warmth (when you’re in the shelter away from the Northerly wind).  Come sun-down and the temperature drops instantly about 10 degrees.  I timed this evening trip to Loch Morlich perfectly, with amazing fiery colours developing after sunset. Here’s […]

Loch an Eilein Ice

Loch an Eilein Ice

Loch an Eilein, Cairngorms National Park Winter really has not happened this year, this is an image from last March on a day of morning ice and stunning clarity of light.  I’m pleased with how it came out, from the stones under the ice in the foreground, to the snowy Cairngorms behind.  I love the […]

Misty sunset on cairngorm

Misty Cairngorm Sunset

Sunset Mist, Cairngorm First of all, a big welcome to this week’s new subscribers.  I have received such lovely feedback about the vibrational energy carried through these images. Here’s another image from last week’s amazing misty sunset, looking across the lower slopes of the Cairngorms, with the hill of Silvermount to the left, and the […]

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 […]


Rothiemurchus and the Cairngorm Mountains A view over Rothiemurchus, with the curve of the River Spey in the foreground, towards the wintry Cairngorm Mountains.  Loch an Eilein is just visible in the middle, nestling in the hills.  It has been stormy, but for us its been a far milder and less snowy winter than in […]

Doune Farm

The farm at Doune of Rothiemurchus, by the river Spey, with the hill of Ord Ban, and the stormy Cairngorms behind. Taken yesterday from Craigellachie hill, behind Aviemore.  It started out as a perfect winter day with blue skies,  sunshine and frost, although by the time I was on Craigellachie there was a bitter wind […]

Through the mist

The Cairngorms from Aviemore.  Corrie Gorm (appearing behind) and Carn Eilrig (the pyramid-shaped hill) through the late afternoon mist. Happy New Year! … and welcome to 2012.  After all the speculation and hysteria about the ‘end of the world’ next December we are finally here.  As I am sure everybody on this list is aware, […]
