Crisp cold vapour suspended in fresh morning air
A waking sun rises on a dormant land
Weak rays of light penetrating dark shadows
Water droplets sparkle revealing hidden corners
Morning mist scurries away revealing a land obscured by light.
Sanna beach at midday.
Golden grains of sand baking in a hot sun
A cool breeze rushing past
A pungent aroma drifts on the air
Clouds hang as if hooked to the sky
Where the land meets the sea
That is where I long to be

Last year I visited the beach at Sanna on the west coast of Scotland. The area is very beautiful and full of creative inspiration and I highly recommend it. When I go to places like this I have two cameras. One is a DSLR which I use to capture as much as I can of the actual beauty. My second camera is my ‘Imagineering’ eye. I have no idea what it sees until I get back and process the pictures from the camera. Even then it can be days, months or even years later but when I look at what it sees I am more than pleased!
Drove to Pitlochry where the sun was shining hoping to catch frost on the trees and only found low water in the River Tummel. I took very few pictures as the scenery was not what I was looking for but this view caught my eye. On returning home and processing the image I was delighted to see the blend of colours and texture. The plants are still dormant but even so they can be extraordinary beautiful.
Sailing gracefully through time. Always going forwards towards some unknown destination. Seeing only changes, never stopping. Her sails fill with the breath of time pulling her forever onwards.

Greif is just love with nowhere to go. Well, perhaps there is somewhere. Perhaps some of it goes to make up sunsets. A beautiful end preserved in an image.
