theme thursday - surface



Well, what an appropriate theme for me as I surface from several weeks of not blogging.

I spent New Year in the Scottish Highlands and took loads of photos!
The surface of Loch Insh caught my eye - part snow, part ice and with clouds rippling on the water ..



If you look very closely you can see a cross etched into the surface of the glass in this window in the church in Kincraig.



Our friend Steve, hoping to surface from the snow (after we'd all done our best to bury him!)



And finally, my favourite track from Sarah McLachlan's album, Surfacing

I love that photo of the window—the cross is stunning!

Wish I'd just spent some time in Scotland; it's my favourite place in the world!

Steve appears that he doesn't want to get up!

Roy said...

Well there you are! I wondered where you'd gotten to. Nice shots of your trip. The Highlands and the Hebrides are on my list of places I need to visit when I hit PowerBall.

I think that's everybody's favorite Sarah song.

Hello Betty! nice post. I haven't been around much these past months myself. but signed on to NaBloPoMo, so it is a good prompt to write something everyday, no matter how pedestrian

Tom said...

she has a wonderful voice, and the melodies...

Oh I should ahve thought Sarah's song--so amazing. Love your photos too. i could totally see the etching when enlarging the images.

Welcome back. Very poignant song there for you coming back to blogland.

hello! so glad you are back in blogland!

your photos make me feel a little chilly - the 2nd one is particularly fab.

Betty said...

Hello. Thank you all for your kind comments. We had a great Hogmanay.

I was going to talk about it here - but I think it deserves a blog post of its own (and I think there are more photos ...)

Been listening to Muse & Brand New recently, but it was lovely to revisit Sarah McLachlan. She really does have the voice of an angel!

Now off to visit your blogs ... :-)
