Light Rush

Light and leaves rush on
Racing each other sunwards
Cold wet stones catch them.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home on the shores of Loch Ness deep in the Scottish Highlands with my husband, my son and a couple of dogs. I love art which is here now and gone food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist and Cancer Support Specialist in Maggies Highlands

  1. Such beauty in your image and words, Seonaid. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you, it was a wonderful moment in an ever shifting space. Those leaves will be gone now, taken by the high wind which swept Scotland a few days ago…..autumn has departed and winter has arrived ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is absolutely stunning. I love the way the light casts through the bars and the leaves. Stunning!

    A beautiful image and haiku. I love the way the golden colour of the leaves in echoed in golden reflections along the bottom of the railing.

    So very very beautiful!

    • Thanks Fi, sometimes it really is worth pulling the car over, just to catch some photos! It’s been such a gorgeous bright dry November…….but now a grey December cloud has descended ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. There you go again … being crazy-creative. Nicely done, as usual. I really like the way, either purposefully or not, your shutter speed was just slow enough to capture the movements of the leaves – a nice touch which really makes the image. The perspective works well too … being a ground level makes us feel as if we’re flying right along. The glare of the sun too seems to add its own little bit of a push. All of these elements come together in a very satisfying way (for me at least). Thanks. D

    • Thank you David, I took quite a few shots until I caught the motion, without the whole image being blurred…..the light was just lovely that day. Of course I was crawling around on my knees, looking crazy and getting damp, as per usual!

    Great imagery and photo, Seonaid. I just read in the comments where it is ๐Ÿ™‚ I didn’t have time to get up Arthur’s Seat but I did my best.

    I love the beautiful words and photo!

  8. Great eye for the unusual detail, great angle also capturing the long, low light of the sun.

    • Many thanks, I wanted to catch the light through the leaves, and just as I got them in focus a little gust would blow….and I would need to reframe and refocus! I lived the long shadow lines from the gate ๐Ÿ™‚

    A lovely light from the setting sun and the flying leaves, Seonaid ๐Ÿ™‚
