Dark White

They are the darkest of days, they are the whitest of days.

The dark brings light.

Rough Seas of Talmine

along with some of the White Stuff

Beautiful pink skies and snowy gardens

Sunrises to remember as the year winds to an end.

Some more snow photos from our very local area.

Bruisers favourite weather

Local trees looking amazing in the snow

Crunchy snow at it’s best

A very merry Christmas from us all at The Woodlife Way.

Stay warm and safe. x

A perfectly magical Birthday trip out.

 

Just at the end of our road, our first photo stop on The Kyle-of-Tongue causeway. A beautiful scene with the sun still low, lighting the snow on Ben Loyal.

Snow on Ben Loyal and the sun warming out morning, a great start to a special day

 

This is my photo of Snow covered Ben Hope with Bruiser watching  Steve on the Kyle slipway taking the previous photo (above) of Ben Loyal.

 

The gorse is in bloom framing the shot.

Beautiful fresh frost on the winter grasses, we stopped here because Bruiser was squeaking so loudly at the Deer he watching through the window. He likes to get out of the car and sit and watch them for a bit. (yes very spoilt dog) .

Glistening Cold and frosted grasses.

This my idea of a perfect road. Small unobtrusive and empty. Definitely on of our favourites, and to tell the truth there are very few roads to choose from here in the Highlands, and most look like this.

Our first sightings of Snowdrops this year. these are in the grounds of Dunrobin Castle where we went by kind invitation to pick up a Yew branch, we are very excited to start work on this beautiful wood which has a rich auburn centre and stunning growth rings, I hope we do it justice.

A trip to Dunrobin would not be complete without taking in this beautiful little Station scene. (it is a request stop) The new season castle opening times begin on the 1st April. I would suggest allowing a full day as there is so much to see and here.

Dunrobin Castle Station. This was built as, and remains the private railway station of the Sutherland family. However everyone can use the ScotRail trains which serve the station. Dunrobin castle is just a short 5 minute walk down a magnificent Tree lined drive from the station.

We drove home via the Loch Brora road, the sun lit our route and added some magical scenes on the water. This is an amazing capture by Steve, the photo is un-edited and created completely by nature.

Tree Magic! An amazing image of a tree and a sun flare on the shores of Loch Brora.

 

We love the swirling pattern caused by the waterfall on this long exposure shot.

The sun setting on the last stretch of the return home led tome great reds in our last photo’s of the day. With the Snow on Ben Klibreck completing the scene.

Between Altnarra and Lairg, in the shadow of Ben Klibreck is this lovely little waterfall – a perfect place for Steve to practice his long exposure photography.

And to complete a wonderful 2017 birthday, A bedtime Aurora. Both Steve and I had an Aurora end to our birthdays this year.

This was a lovely end to a fantastic day. A birthday aurora at bedtime. Perfect.

Winter sun

A beautiful sunny day again today. The sun is melting the hard frost from yesterday, the snow is almost melted from the mountain tops, the primroses are starting to appear! but it’s not over yet – is it? I for one certainly have a feeling that the bulk of snow hasn’t arrived yet. We did have a fair amount in january that only hung around for a couple of days. I am personally hoping for snowfall in the last days of February (for my Birthday!). Hopefully warming up again before lambing.

Sun shining through the last of the ice today 12th February.

Sunrising at Talmine Harbour 30th January

The Little stone bridge and just a slight covering of snow left on Ben Hope in the background. Today 12th February.

I really like this photo and would love to have it printed on Canvas, If anyone would like a print please email us

 

The dog watching Steve taking the photo. Just because he likes to be a part of everything.
