Hey everyone! I was doing some brainstorming on what words come to mind when I look at my Fine Art collection and thought you might be able to help! Words I usually use are: Atmospheric, Fairytale, Fantasy…and so on. Other people have compared them to Lord Of The Rings, Alfred Hitchcock, Game of Thrones… I’m… Read More Competition: What Words Do You Think Of?
About The Hermitage The path at The Hermitage (near Dunkeld) leads you through stunning Perthshire woodland alongside the River Braan. After a short walk you approach the very pretty Ossian’s Hall. You can enter the hall and overlook the amazing Black Linn Falls of the River Braan, or you can continue along the path and… Read More The Hermitage Woodland Walk, Dunkeld
There is a patch of woodland near our house – a lovely little escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s a popular spot for dog walkers and is somewhere I go when I need a break but don’t fancy driving out of the village. Autumn seems to be arriving early this year… Read More Early Autumn in Scone Woods
Yesterday I went for a wander in the local woods with my macro lens to hunt for fungi. I found loads! I’ll be writing up a blog post about them soon, but in the mean time, here’s an unexpected gem. I’ve called it “Ferns and Daydreams”. I’m actually kinda tempted to print this one! If… Read More Ferns and Daydreams
Today’s photo is of a rather magical snowy hike around the woodland and hills near Kingussie. We had SO much snow that day! I was wearing my winter mountaineering boots and full waterproofs. The snow came up to my knees in places! A very hard work hike, but worth it for the incredible views. … Read More A Magic Winter

However summer also brings two things I’m not so fond of: midges, and huge crowds of tourists. There’s been quite a lot of talk about how the crowds are affecting Skye. I’m… Read More Summer on Syke
I just learned that today is National Wildlife Day! Which means today’s photo had to be of something adorable from the Scottish Highlands. I encountered a few of these beautiful tiny rabbits at the edge of a small woodland near Loch Ness a few months ago. I spent a good hour with them (and the… Read More Spring Rabbit
Dunnottar Castle on a chilly December day. Since it’s Open Studios this week, I can’t go out taking new photos, which means I’m digging through the murky depths of my Lightroom catalog for old favourites to re-edit and share with you! Amidst the dust and cobwebs there are a few gems! I took… Read More Dunnottar Castle In December
Today’s image is one I shot a few years ago, near the Moray Coast of Scotland. I recently went back to this spot to see what the scene was like and the little cabin has since given-way quite a lot. Also, since it was summer, the scene was incredibly lush and green. I definitely preferred… Read More The Cabin Of Loch Oire
