Deer in the glen

190/365
A few more photos of the wild deer in the glen (Glencoe).  Loved watching them in their natural habitat and found it a real privilege being able to walk amongst these beautiful creatures so freely.  They didn't seem to mind people getting right up close to them or taking their photographs - maybe the fact they were being fed helped a little, but regardless it was amazing to witness these wild animals mingling happily with humans.

Serenity Circle - January 2018

"He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul" - Psalm 23:2
{ A tribute to my dear mum who passed away 27th December 2017 }

Loch Leven, Ballachulish, NW Scotland
Welcome to the first Serenity Circle post of 2018. The Serenity circle is a collaborative project consisting of a number of multi-genre photographers from different parts of the world who come together on the 3rd Wednesday of each month and share images relating to 'serenity'. 

The images above were captured on the banks of Loch Leven, overlooking the Ballachulish Bridge in the distance. It was a beautiful calm morning and the reflection of the mountains spread out across the still waters looked so serene and peaceful. 

This was a spot my dear mum loved to sit and look out across the loch when she was well. I can totally understand why she loved it here because it is such a beautiful scenic location. It's where I would go for walks with Ben, the family dog at the time when I lived in the local village, and so it holds many fond memories for me too.

Next in the Serenity circle is Iris from Iris Nelson Photography. Iris is a multi-genre photographer from 
Metro Phoenix and this month she has chosen 'macro' photography to share.

Please click here to enjoy all Iris and the rest of the girls in the circle have to share this month and as always, thank you for joining us.
