An early February picture when we walked up Fuffock Hill, and a mid March piece of editing that came out dark and moody and which absolutely matches my frame of mind just now.
If you want a more cheerful mood, turn up your screen brightness fully and bask in its sombre glory!
St Mary’s Isle is a heavily wooden tongue of land that runs down the centre of Kirkcudbright Bay and is a popular area for an afternoon walk from the town. Despite this it is a very secluded and quiet place at any time of the year. Hopefully, once this vey cold weather has departed, it will be full of daffodils and a little later covered in a haze of bluebells. This is a July 2013 view.
The woods at Brighouse Bay are a favourite place for a short walk with the dog and here is another example that was taken in February ten years ago.
I have an autumn exhibition to prepare for and one range of images that are under consideration involve woodland and forest scenes, as well as trees in the landscape. Some of these will definitely appear as monochrome images, but in the meantime here is a Brighouse Bay woodland scene as shafts of light penetrate through the trees to illuminate an ancient dyke.
This view from the Galloway Forest takes in the snow covered Cairnsmore of Fleet. A small part of the Southern Uplands of SW Scotland.
Looking south-east towards the coast from Fuffock Hill across the peaceful landscape of southern Scotland. You might just be able to make out the offshore wind farm of Robin Rigg that stands in the middle of the Solway Firth at centre left. On the horizon are the mountains of the English Lake District.
