The day shows herself
Letting in light by layers
Shade flees to the folds.
Taken as the sun rose over the Plockton Crags on Good Friday morning.

This is also Day 1 of a 7 Day nature photo challenge which Amy nominated me for!
Today I’m inviting Sarah to join in. She takes incredibly beautiful and intimate photos of butterflies, birds and flowers. I love her eye for detail.
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 tomorrow...like 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

those subtle colors really reflect the delicate morning hour.
Thanks Anette….I don’t have a lot of sunrise captures as I’m not often out and about early….but this is from my doorstep😊
even sweeter, from your doorstep….effortless picture that just fell into your hands 🙂 well, you know what I mean 🙂
Ohh … the trees look right out of some ancient landscape painting.
Gorgeous and rich image, Seonaid. What a beautiful way to begin a day. ❤
Thank you so much for join the challenge! Beautiful photo and poem, as always! 🙂
Love the layers you captured! ❤
I love that this is Plockton, but I love it no matter where it is! Gorgeous
You read my thoughts again Leeanne 😊😵💕
Thanks Paul, it was lovely soft light😊
ah so it was you who had the light Seonaid – great depth as well as beauty
I’m sorry to say I did Laura😜
As compensation I’ve invited you to join the 7 day nature challenge….one shot a day (but I cheated today with 3!!)… And invite someone else each day. Simple😊
you must have been up real early for this shot… but definitely worth it… love the soft light, the silhouettes of the ridges in the distance… the gate is such a great detail, as if inviting you to go out, set on an adventure into a new day… beautiful photo and mood, Seonaid 🙂
Many thanks Alexandra💕The image was taken from the field at the back of the house…..so not too far to stagger while still half asleep! I still had my pyjamas on under my coat and wellies😜😆
hahaha I thought of nominating you, but didn’t think you’d want to do it. Glad you have though this is gorgeous and I know I’ll love your whole week!
Gilly you are just too nice😆 I’m on holiday this week, so it seems achievable for once to post a little something each day😊💕
Ahhh, the fresh morning air. The sighs of a new beginning! A timely post as we just agreed to take a small two bedroom apartment. I have a LOT to get rid of… a New Beginning will be good for me… once I get through the old stuff. Need anything for your home??? I have a LOT to get rid of! 😉 As always I love your pictures and descriptive words!! Beautiful!
Gwynn, I wish you luck with sorting out what to take with you to your fresh new home, and what to discard or give away. Isn’t it amazing how much stuff gathers around us each year without us really noticing? I just did a big clear out of our food pantry last week😵😳it was a bit scary what I found in there!!
I feel a post on this brewing!!
Such a very beautiful photograph, Seonid….
Thanks Cara, it turned into a rather lovely day😊
stunning…and liking the ‘haikus’… 😀
Thank you, I’m naturally so wordy that it’s been a great discipline to learn to capture my feelings in so few words!😆💕
Seonid, your many words are always divine… 🙂 However, yes, Haiku teaches us much with little… (oh, I hear you on this…’verbosity’ is my middle name) LOL
It’s also quite addictive once you get started! Delighted you enjoyed the results
Beautiful dawn image, Seonaid. Lovely haiku too. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia, nothing like a bit of soft morning to light to drag me out of the warm house😆
What a beautiful, many-layered image, Seonaid!
Many thanks Sue. I love it when the mountains spill back in ever softening layers😊
Goodness, so do. I…but something I have seen so very rarely, not living near mountains!
