There is a magic to the landscape of Scotland. The shadows seem to snuggle in the hills, the sun knows just where to shine, and colors tend to find their most unique shade of perfection. Like Walt Whitman said ~ “I swear to you, there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell”. To me, Scotland is one of those divine things – indescribable!

A white cruise ship takes us on a journey to the white and icy world of Alaska, and in Scotland we wonder if the white Blair Castle is haunted by white knights. Meanwhile, in our own backyard… beauty abounds when white clouds decorate a bright blue sky.

I find something rather inspiring about an old weathered object or structure. Its presence alone represents the strength to overcome that which seeks to destroy it — time.

Photo taken at Leault Farm, somewhere between Culloden and Carrbridge in Scotland.
The highlight of 2017 for me was our trip to Scotland and Ireland in the Spring of this year. This is my favorite photo from that trip. It was just a brief photo stop at Eilean Donan Castle – we didn’t even go inside – but the setting was just so beautiful that I took dozens of photos here and I love them all!
Wishing you all a peaceful and healthy New Year – plus an abundance of creative photo opportunities!
