Mountain of the Mind
Mountain of the MindBuachaille Etive Mor, the mountain which the mind imagines. This mountain consumes your thoughts as you drive along the road towards Glencoe. The morning started with unbearable wind and rain. After a couple of attempts to leave the car and being blown back in we decided to sit it out a while in the car. After an hour or so the weather broke just enough to be able to see changes in the light.
The Valley of Fire
The Valley of FireDeep into the valley of Glencoe Two of the Three Sisters keep a watchful eye over us mortal creatures from above the mist. The day had been submerged in a light rain until the afternoon when the mist began to clear as if being pulled apart by the surrounding hills.

Valley Lodge

Isolation as a Dream
Isolation as a DreamI guess when you visit this place there is a small part of you that suddenly believes in the idea of heaven. Then maybe you worry about the internet connection speed.

Transpire
TranspireThe unfolding of the landscape as the clouds blow in from the west coast of Scotland near Lochinver. I am a big fan of images which are subtle yet convey the mood of the moment. There was no bright sunrise but there was a great deal of movement in the clouds. Overlooking the landscape of Assynt there is also an unavoidable factor of scale. The landscape just goes on and on so you feel like a insignificant viewer from afar as the day unfolds.
