“Hidden Galloway” Photography exhibition @ Ross Gallery, Stranraer
Hot on the heels of my “Galloway Squirrels” exhibition at the Tolbooth Arts Centre in Kirkcudbright, is a solo exhibition of my landscape work at the new Ross Gallery in Stranraer Museum.
And so the Galloway Squirrels exhibition draws to a close….
Yesterday was the last day of my Galloway Squirrels photography exhibition at the Tolbooth Art Centre in Kirkcudbright.
Woods are not like other spaces
“Woods are not like other spaces. To begin with, they are cubic. Their trees surround you, loom over you, press in from all sides. Woods choke off views & leave you muddled & without bearings. They make you feel small & confused & vulnerable, like a small child lost in a crowd of strange legs.
The old tree atop the knowe
Everyone has a favourite tree, and I am no different. In fact I probably have a few, starting with the old beech tree that me and my sisters used to climb as kids. But after moving into the cottage, I now call home, my new favourite tree is found just over the dyke in an adjoining field.
Sometimes there is so much you want to say about an image and what it evokes in you; why you took it; why you are sharing it; what it means, that you just can’t find the words. This is such a shot.
This image is of all that remains of Cruggleton Castle at Garlieston as captured last weekend when it was blowing a gale, and had the barley field rippling like the sea below.
Castlerigg Stone Circle
It was so lovely last weekend that a day trip to the north west coast of England on Saturday (Silloth, Workington, Whitehaven…) turned into spending the rest of the weekend in the Lake District.
