Don't fence me in - A bright and cheery shot to lift the spirits in these dark, claustrophobic times. One of the first places I managed to visit at the end of lockdown last summer. Blea Tarn, a favourite haunt of mine.

Suffering from itchy shutter finger and cabin fever at present, no doubt like so many of us. I'm longing to be able to get out properly and visit these inspirational locations that I love so much. Stick in there everyone, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

In Awe and wonder – Golden hour at the truly stunning and inspirational setting of Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe, lit by the dawn light burning off the day's early morning mist streaming down the loch. I'm so drawn to this location having been privileged and lucky to experience several magical dawns here, waiting patiently lochside, totally transfixed in awe and wonder by the scene unfolding before me.

Witnessing first light and dawn breaking at this quintessentially Scottish location is a genuinely captivating and enchanting experience; one cannot fail to be touched by nature's raw beauty or to wonder what scene will present, as every day's conditions seem so unique here.

For now, I'll dream about when I can next visit to feed my addiction of witnessing these mirror perfect conditions that I so crave.

Pendle in wintertime - Pendle Hill in wintertime presiding over a snow-clad Ribble Valley with a cap of cloud just gently blowing over the summit plateau.

Lockdown conditions dictate having to stay (very) local, so making the best of the conditions on the doorstep.

Arches of colour - Dusk descends across Batty Moss after the winter sun drops below the western horizon dramatically silhouetting Ribblehead Viaduct. The sky seemingly loaded with the colours of the rainbow; the arches filled with the intense orange afterglow of sunset and the top of the viaduct delimiting the cooler tones of the sky above.

This was taken on my last visit to Ribblehead - New Year's Eve in 2019 and over a whole year ago now - I find it hard to believe that I did not manage a single visit to one of my favourite locations during the whole of 2020. Oh how so much has changed in that time.

Stay safe everyone.

Winter in Glencoe

Winter in Glencoe – A peaceful afternoon at the picturesque Glencoe Lochan with a brief respite in the otherwise inclement conditions at that time, with the superbly still water giving near-perfect reflections of the Pap of Glencoe and trees all around the lochan.

Amazingly captured at the end of October and imaged in infrared, making the foliage glow iridescent all around the lochan; it does look like a heavy frost has settled on the trees with a light dusting of snow on the Pap. Although taken in autumn it does give the illusion of winter in Glencoe.
