"I Fill the Sky with Words of Light." The title for this photograph comes from a poem by Thomas Merton, written in 1944. Sometimes the phrase sticks in my mind as a perfect way to describe how I think of landscape photography. It is also what pops into my head when I hear someone talking about how nature "speaks" to them. What does it mean for you?
Highland Cattle are known as a hardy breed well able to cope with the rugged nature of their native Scottish Highlands which have a high annual rainfall and sometimes very strong winds. Their hair is considered the longest of any cattle breed and gives protection during the cold winters.
Spring is coming in fits and starts this year, there was frost last night. But the change in light and the reappearance of the verdant valleys are unmistakeable and welcome signs.
