Scotland is...

Dramatic skies
Church steeples
Green hillsides
Rain then sun then rain
Plaid and kilted
Bloody history
Lochs and firths
Lilting accents
Hearty food
Lots of fun

We are back from our relaxed week in Scotland, where the weather was amazingly warm and sunny the last couple of days. I even got a bit of sunburn! Back in Italy it's grey and rainy, so my sunburn will fade fast. I can feel it disappearing already.

This image is from our first evening in Inverness, one of the times the sun popped out right before sundown. I loved the dramatic light and dark contrast found in the sky and the churches. Just one of the many skies we witnessed on this trip, it was ever changing. I'm just starting to go through my pictures and I look forward to sharing more this week!

Don't forget, today is the last day to sign up for the Liberate your Art Postcard Swap. Tomorrow I'll share the final count and the updated link list. I'm so excited!


  1. Wow Kat, what a dramatic image. Don't you love it when sun comes out right around sundown after a cloudy day? Lifts spirits and provides great photo op. Looking forward to seeing more.

  2. Don't you love Scotland! It's a beautiful dramatic place in our world. Rugged charm and great beer!

  3. oh i miss scotland! lived there for three years and i loved it so much.

  4. Lovely b&w image. So glad you enjoyed Scotland and had some good weather - I knew you would!

  5. I would have liked to jump on a train and come and have dinner with you all at Rachels. Sounded so nice! x

  6. Lovely picture, and so interested to hear your impressions of Scotland. Having grown up there it's difficult to see it from a visitor's point of view. Looking forward to seeing more photos.


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
