A Day for Reflection

Crisp sunshine, ultramarine sky with fluffy white clouds, snow-dusted peaks, no wind… today was the northwest Highlands in tranquil mode. Calming, majestic, mesmerizing. Full of visual puzzles if you look at pieces rather than the whole. So many starting points for abstracted landscape paintings, using pattern and colour from reality rather than painting the postcard view.

Cluanie Dam. But for these two taking photos, I would’ve tossed a pebble into the still water; I waited a bit but they weren’t leaving any time soon.

This is my favourite photo from today. It’s taken standing on a bank of Loch Garry, looking down through some trees onto still water reflecting clouds. Inset photo shows the scene looking across the water to the hills on the other side of the loch.
