I took these photos while climbing the Quiraing,on the Isle of Skye this June. All mountains lift my spirit and infuse me with a sense of freedom. Its as though walking up into the clouds peels away layers of tightness I hadn’t even noticed gathering within me. I feel closer to something spiritual, and there is a timelessness, where the earth meets the sky.
This particular mountain area has a spiritual vibe deeper than almost anywhere else I have visited. Every visit fills me with awe, and as the clouds swirl in shifting patterns around the strange and jagged rocks, and the views open up across the sea, I breathe out and let my spirit run free.
All my worldly worries have been abandoned on the lower slopes, and every step along the stoney path carries me further away from them. I am left free to soak up the space and vision offered on these high peaks, and to renew my creative free spirit, watched by the sentinals of stone which have towered here for millenia.
those are beautiful pictures! and I love your name…my maiden name is Mackenzie…how fun! – rita
Hi Rita. Thanks so much, glad you like them. Mackenzie is my middle name, all the girls in my extended family carry it as a middle name. It means the clan name isnt lost when we marry 🙂 Plockton, in Rosshire, where my mum was born is swimming with Mackenzies, but even my little family branch of the clan has spread to the four corners of the world now….mostly Canada and Australia….but we remain firmly in Scotland 🙂
