Mountain burn, Torrin, Isle of Skye.
Here’s the other side of nature. You’re used to seeing beautiful soft and appealing photos of the northwest of Scotland from me, majestic mountains and serene scenes. Today you’re looking at Cluanie, a river angry and violent. In another photo it was in the process of taking out a centuries old stone bridge. This is also Scotland - wild, untameable and very powerful. Too much rain in too short a time and this is the result. Nature strikes its own balance and we can only shelter and watch.

Frank Heumann is on his way to Skye. The road north, ahhh…that phrase gets me every time. I want to be happy for him; he takes fabulous photos (he took this one of Buchaille, just coming into Glencoe) and I enjoy them, they make many people happy…. It’s not quite working though because I just want to be there, not to look at photos, beautiful and worthy of admiration but to see, smell, touch everything until my eyes grow full, my heart even fuller and I am replete. Can you take it “Mings” or has it tipped you over the edge? ”Kymali,” not so long for you now…
