A small burn, or stream, is seen here on a visit to check out the display of bluebells in Carstramon Woods. The bluebells were not at their peak so I scrambled up a hillside to follow the course of this small Burn. The fresh green of spring’s growth is seen against a mossy rock.
When the light’s as good as this you have to stop and exercise the pixels.
Lowran Falls drop down Bennan Hill into Loch Ken and I was returning from a writing workshop in New Galloway along the road that runs alongside the Loch when the glint of light on water caught my eye through the trees. Not too much rain recently, so there wasn’t much water splashing out of the hills but the mossy rocks were catching that light beautifully.
The trees are just gaining their spring foliage in this view taken at Caerlaverock Castle in Dumfries & Galloway.
An April visit to Carstramon Woods brings forth the beauty of fresh springtime growth from both the spectacular annual display of bluebells that carpet the ground, as well as the greening of leaves from the ancient oak tree who’s splayed branches testify to the dynamic energy of rising sap, reaching for the light.
