Winters Light

The small winter sun shimmers low and weak. Unable to climb high into the sky, its warmth and light are quickly lost to sparkles at sea. Colour and flowers pass from the cold earth which holds her breath, waiting for Spring. Our worlds shrink in the darkness pushing in at the edges, and we too wait, paused and silent, for the suns power to return. We turn inwards looking for inner light to show us the path onwards in winters weak light. In the light of the small sun, winter grips the earth, and we all shiver with longing for heat and light.

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

    Your images are incredible as always. With the tide out so far, the birds are thankful for the goodies the tide leaves behind.

    I hope you and your husband and family had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I look forward to more of your gorgeous pictures and inspiring words.

    • Many thanks Gwynn, and the same good wishes to you and yours. That long expanse of exposed sand is just glorious for both birds and photography! The ebb and flow of the tides is a wonderful daily mystery.

  9. So good to hear from you! And as always, inspiring, anxiously awaiting feeling .

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
