Firstly apologies for lack of content and news on my blog this year, Where has the time gone ! Perhaps as covid restrictions are virtually non existent now life is a little more like normal....busy busy !
From February till May the weather was the usual dreary cold winter although relatively snow and ice free it was more dull and wet. We took this opportunity to do some house decorating !
May then saw greens starting to appear and the landscapes awaken into colourful glory ! It was time to get out and about !!
June was good, lots of sunny days and heat becoming more apparent, but, July really burst forth with some hot sunny weather and I mean really hot for the Highlands.
It's alway difficult in summer months during the day when the light is harsh and bright. However this year I have been looking for things more intimately within the landscape like this image of the Kyle on a blistering hot very early sunny morning. the light on the greens and reflections really shone with the red roof adding colour.
We have made the most of the weather, hillwalking in Torridon, cycling, beach walks and of course my beloved forests. Already there is a slight change in the light and the nights beginning to darken earlier !
Summer will soon be making way for the Autumn spectacle !

Canvases and cards have been selling exceptionally well considering the chaos the world economy has burdened us all with. So thank you to all who have purchased for the first time or added to their collection.
I have 2 new outlets for my cards and canvases. Meikle Ferry Station near Edderton, a very beautiful newly renovated restaurant and gift shop and also Invercassley Tea Rooms at Rosehall. A small family run restaurant and licensed bar! with gifts for sale. A real homely wee place, very friendly with good hearty food.

We have a few plans for August, places to visit and some more camping after schools return mid month in Scotland, although, in general, apart from the honeypot locations the Highlands without a doubt is very quiet this year we have noticed. Fuel prices no doubt being the major issue.

Thank you for catching up stay safe and enjoy the rest of summer !
