Deer in the glen

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

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…

Rachael, Millie and Uncle George

A few photos of family taken recently when I was back home. Rachael wasn't feeling too well when these photos were taken and she came down with a virus the next day which left her in bed for a few days afterwards and still unwell days later. It was however really good catching up with my niece and meeting her pony Millie too. Millie is so protective of her which is nice to watch.

Little deer

Sometimes God gives us moments to cheer the heart when he knows we are aching, just as He did when I watched this little French boy feeding deer in Glencoe today (kind permission granted by parents).
