Sheep are a common sight everywhere you go in Scotland, expect for the large cities. You can see them running loose in villages and sitting by the side of the one-track country roads. It’s charming! After seeing so many, I started to notice their faces and to think that each one looked unique. This photo is my contribution this week to Monochrome Madness hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
I love waterfalls! These cascades are part of a chain of waterfalls tumbling through the Glen Coe pass in Scotland.
The reflections in this clear, quiet lake on the Isle of Skye in Scotland inspired me to work fast because I knew they would soon disappear with the impending wind and rain. In the distance, you can see one of the country’s most iconic rock formations, The Old Man of Storr.
The spires in this image belong to Rosslyn Chapel, a Scottish landmark long shrouded in legend and mystery and, in recent years, made even more famous due to its association with the movie, the Da Vinci Code.
Waiting and waiting, bundled up in every layer of clothing I could find in my suitcase, I saw the Aurora Borealis appear three times in one night on the outskirts of Reykjavik, Iceland. It was well worth being cold and staying up until 4 am!
This is the charming city of Edinburgh, Scotland, as seen from Calton Hill, across from Edinburgh Castle. The castle is lit in purple in the distance. The structure in the foreground is a monument to Scottish philosopher Dugald Stewart. It is really great to be home from my travels and posting again!
This hillside village in Guizhou Province, China is nestled among both dense, wild vegetation and terraced rice paddies. This photo will be my submission this week to the Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
