Occasional Ramblings with a Camera

This blog is my occasional ramblings on here, there and about, with and very occasionally without a camera. Photography, art, landscape (principally Scottish), heritage and wildlife are the things that interest me the most, so thats what I'll be writing about and of course showing pictures of. They say that a photograph is worth a thousand words, well I'm not so sure about that but if it is then great as it will save me a heap of typing, all power to the image.

This to that ~ and back again


I recently came across an old Christmas card that I sent out in 2002. It was my first encounter with folds (I kept calling them fanks for some time, until I learnt otherwise) associated with shieling grounds, in one of my favourite locations, Glen Taitneach. Though I knew nothing of their purpose, I assumed for sheep, even then could detect a certain resonance. I thought them curious and interesting. I definitely never realised how they would become an area of study and creation many years later.
I did have an interest in archaeology prior to this image, after I moved back to Perthshire from Skye. I sought out stone circles, that I recall making a good set of images from, also a good 'treasure hunt' in the countryside.
That circular enclosed space, how curious. So, Christmas card 2002 and 'the silence falls' 2018. Click on the images and 'view in new tab' to get a slightly larger view.
