A wild wet week in a bothy in Scotland….to some maybe a bit of a hard sell as a summer holiday but our stay in the bothy on Dry Island, Badachro was an adventure we would not have missed!
Wester Ross is not just another country it’s another world, where brooding mountains meet a sea awash with jellyfish. In between a skirt of dripping birch trees and glorious flora hidden deep in the peat and between the rocks.
The scale of the landscape is extraordinary, there is almost nothing between the monumental and the miniscule, no middle way between mountain and lichen carpet.
Yes there was kayaking, boat trips, crab cooking, mackeral catching, fire pit stoking, wood and bracken shelter building and lots of walking but the pictures I want to share are some of the hundreds I took of plants and lichens….an overload of inspiration to bring back to my studio. I took lots of black and white images but I am sharing (honestly brutally edited down!) some of the colour ones…
