Aheny River, Co Kerry, Ireland

Aheny River

A gorge and small waterfall on the Aheny River, inland from the charming town of Kenmare.  I loved this wee spot with the oak trees overhanging the gorge.


Azalea Blossom No more complaints about the cold spring – my salad seeds have gone into overdrive  to make up for lost time, and I’m sure that 90% of the Scottish population will have turned bright red in the last few days of intense sunshine – probably a similar shade to the beautiful Azalea pictured […]

Sycamore leaf bud opening

Sycamore leaf bud opening, backlit in evening light I loved the vibrancy of this leaf as it opened, with its coppery colours backlit by the evening sun.  Spring has continued its slow progress, with another wet, cold week, but progress nonetheless! This week – who are you in resonance with?  What kind of journey are […]

Golden Tresses

Golden tresses of Birch leaves, Craigellachie Taken last week before the weather turned back to winger again!  Late afternoon light at Craigellachie catches the freshly unfurled birch leaves in a golden-green glow, against the dark backdrop of the lochan and the crags behind. This is from a lovely book which I came across this week, […]

Wood Anenome

Wood Anenomes, Craigellachie Birch Wood, Aviemore This week, Spring happened… Here in the Highlands it was a stunning five days of constant sun with hardly the faintest puff of white cloud the whole time.  The mornings started icy, the air during the day being that clarity of simultaneously burning and freezing which we can get […]

Bluebells in evening light

Wherever you are, I hope you’ve had as stunning a weekend as we have just enjoyed in Scotland, basking in hot clear sunshine!  It feels like its been a long time coming! “… the heart generates the body’s most powerful and most extensive rhythmic electromagnetic field.  It is sixty times greater in amplitude than that […]

Wood Anenome

The chilly, cold May continues… but the anenomes carpet the Birch wood. Check out the new blog, inspirationalimage.co.uk, featuring all of my past images of the week. “As you come to recognise the power of your consciousness, that what is behind your eyes, so to speak, holds more power than what appears in front of […]

Rhododendron, Benmore

Rhododendron, Benmore gardens, Argyll. Welcome to May… and fresh snow on the hills! Here’s an image from a chilly, wet, visit to Benmore tree gardens in Argyll.  There’s an amazing variety of Rhododendron in flower just now, bringing such a colourful vibration, despite the rain! “As you breathe, think of life moving in and out […]

Fern Spiral

Fern Spiral This week’s choice of image was  hard, after a glorious spring week with fresh colour everywhere;  wild flowers and blossom, and the woods turning the hillsides green. ” Sitting quietly, doing nothing, Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.” – Tao Te Ching I like this – whatever our circumstances in life, […]
