We recently travelled to the Isle of Skye and the Western Highlands of Scotland. October in Scotland is glorious and the weather was good – not too overcast, not too sunny – so that we were able to see the land in many of its moods and atmospheres. I have selected a few images around the subject of water. I hope you enjoy the visual essay.

Taken from a cafe window in Portree, Skye, early morning looking east.


Fron Ord, Sleat, Isle of Skye, looking across Loch Eishort towards the Black Cuillins.


Clouds reflecting in the still waters of a loch an near Kilt Rock, Trotternish, Skye.



Looking across the sea to Harris from Duntulm, Trotternish, Skye.



Ripples on Loch Bay, Waternish, Skye.



Dawn sky over Kyleakin, Skye. The view from our bedroom window.



Sunrise over Kyleakin, Skye. Waves of light.



Early morning mists lift into the sky over Glen Garry.


Mists, shadows, trees, Glen Garry.

Chattering jackdaws.


Stubble field.
One withered apple
On the old tree.
