Sunset on Braeriach reflected in a small loch

Reflection Pool

The Reflection Pool, Rothiemurchus Braeriach glinting in the distance in the sunset light, as the surrounding Caledonian Forest is reflected in a small loch.  I particularly like the glint of golden light on the crags to the right. Its not been a photographically inspiring month, it seems that most of the last month has been […]


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 […]

Braeriach Sunset

Braeriach Sunset, Cairngorm Mountains.

Everything in nature, all of the landscape, trees, rivers, rocks, earth, and mountains are repeating who they are over and over […]

Cairngorm Mountains

Northern Corries of the Cairngorm Mountains, from Glenmore. Taken this afternoon, to prove that we’ve had some glorious sunshine this summer! (At least today…) And some wind as well. “Although the wind is very powerful and you can feel its presence, in and of itself it cannot be seen. You know it is there by […]
