World sheepdog trials.
For 'mings,' Scottish mountains and sheep - does it get better than this?

This has appeared on my blog before but surely it’s worth an encore? The photographer calls this ‘The Magnificent Seven.”
As my day is drawing to a close, this seemed a fitting image to finish with.
It’s not photographically impressive but it does remind me of why I loved driving alone at night on those Skye roads. Many evenings I drove back along this road late and aside from rabbits, in places sheep and often deer to share the road with, it was just me and my thoughts. That’s one thing I loved and really miss now, space without distraction to think. Being so close to nature compels one to breathe slower, loosen the shoulders and let the mind and thoughts unfurl. Problems seem smaller, answers come easier and the voice of inspiration is loud and clear.
