Late autumn colours
Even end of November the autumn colours haven't faded. Logie Steading 2017
Walking up from Glen Feshie we reached Sgorr Gaioth, a spectacular summit along Loch Eanaich, with even more spectacular views of the sun-spotted mountains on the other side. Cairngorms, June 2017
Young Wood Elf
This young beech tree lit up in a ray of sunlight before our eyes. It was like a wood elf appearing. At Randalph's Leaf the veils between the worlds are thin. Randalph's Leap, November 2017
Painting in Green and Brown
In late November the autumn colours get a subdued character, tending to the browns. Randalph's Leap, 2017
The Findhorn River originates in the remote Monadhliath Mountains, fed by many burns springing from the soggy hills. Monadhliaths, September 2017
The rocks below the surface and the reflection of the trees form a wonderful abstract painting. Findhorn River September 2014
For hours I can sit, perched on a boulder in the stream, connecting to the flowing of the waters. I seem to hear the soft laughter of the naiads in the murmering of the stream. Findhorn River, May 2014
Beautiful gnarly old tree
Picture taken in Ryvoan Pass, Cairngorms in mid-winter. The tree gives me a feel of the power and resilience of the remnants of ancient wood in the Highlands.
Ancient Giants Called Tors
I've tried to capture the primordial strength of those immovable tors on top of Ben Rinnes. They have withstood the gigantic power of the glaciers of the past ice age.
After the onslaught of the chainsaw
A small group of lodgepole trees seem to accentuate the desolation that's left after the plantation has been cut down. Photo taken in Glen Affric, autumn.
The morning atmosphere of this wood in autumn colours struck me. In the background the ground mist where the woods still seems to be sleeping. Glen Affric.
Stepping into the open
After a walk through Abernethy Forest, we emerged from the trees and felt exhilarated looking accross the open to Ryvoan Pass, Cairngorms. The pure air from the mountains blowing in our faces forced me to choose a short shutter speed.
Naked Limbs of Dead Tree
Also in death is beauty. Randalph's Leap, June 2015
The blue sky reflects in Findhorn River, masking its brown colour - which is caused by the peat from the hills where it originates. Randalp's Leap, August 2014
Someone told me this path leading from Cluny to the entrance of the Steiner School was actually a very ancient road that druids used. I need to verify this hear-say. January 2017
