Bleak Highland landscape –
Damp mist-shrouded mountain-sides,
Brooding weathered skies –
Mirrors my melancholy,
Reflects my passionate soul.
Although I currently live in England, Scotland is the land of my birth, and however much I may love experiencing different landscapes from across the globe, nothing touches my emotions in quite the same visceral way as the spectacularly beautiful landscapes of home.
This blue-toned bleak landscape was taken this morning from the main-line train travelling southwards from Inverness to London, and I found the particular mix of solitary tree, wild heavy sky, delicate morning mist and smooth-surfaced water beautifully captured my own peaceful-yet-restless inner tensions.
