“This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless, Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done, Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best. Night, sleep, and the stars.” - Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass ... See MoreSee Less
Aurora over Reykjavik. The coldest I have ever been taking a photo. It was after midnight down by the sea, the lights in the distance are Reykjavik. The shadow on the building is me. ... See MoreSee Less
“We have nothing to fear and a great deal to learn from trees, that vigorous and pacific tribe which without stint produces strengthening essences for us, soothing balms, and in whose gracious company we spend so many cool, silent, and intimate hours.” - Marcel Proust ... See MoreSee Less
I have always loved trees from talking to them when I was a little child and stroking their trunks, certain they could hear me, understand and relish my strokes. Trees the sustainers and soil and soul stabilisers.
Thank you for capturing the stark beauty of the Cathedral set against the background of the lovely shades of blue of the sky. The tree is so important as it appears to welcome people to enter.
I LOVE trees and forests, always have! Also magnificent buildings like the one in this picture!
Do you know if anyone is doing similar work in Glasgow /elsewhere?
What stories these cathedrals could tell!
Gorgeous shot! Lovely colors!

We all need to have a place in our minds where we can retreat to,when things are tough.It helps us cope.If we can imagine life beyond the trauma it gives hope.Dreamers are innovative and creative.❤💛❤
As they said in the sixties, “There is a fault in reality”🦄
Wonderful photo!!! And words so true💜

That’s the shop on the curve of the sidewalk from one of your other pictures isn’t it! Love that little shop! From what I can see inside, I could spend some quiet time just browsing. Thank you for posting this picture!
Should make a book with the pictures and sayings I would definitely buy it xx

Love this! I was born and raised on Prince Edward Island (birthplace of L. M. Montgomery) and have been fortunate to live in Edinburgh twice. My two favourite places in the world, captured in one beautiful post ❤️

Well the quote goes: "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this Son of York". Where's our glorious summer then eh? 😂
Behind those shops is a flat ...which is actually on Castle Wynde. we go there to stay sometimes if we're lucky. we have a little patio and access to the garden just below the castle. we have squirrels come to visit and sometimes we see a rabbit .
It surely is The Winter of Our Discontent, pray that summer will bring with it the beginning of the end of Covid so the people of the world can hope for some normalcy after this horrendous year.🙏 for all.
"The Winter of Our Discontent" is a novel by John Steinbeck, too.
All these great cities crying out for human company so sad
Was there for the Christmas Market 2019 first time in Edinburgh beautiful city old part's and new. Definitely go back when life has some normal to it.
