Reflections on our holiday

One of the most beautiful things I noticed when we were on holiday was the light on the water. Our cottage overlooked, Loch Carron, which was tidal, but very calm. Every morning we looked out of the window to a glorious view of the water. And many of our walks involved views of the loch. Capturing the atmosphere and beauty on camera proved difficult:

However, on our final full day we visited the Lochcarron Gallery and enjoyed seeing the different ways that local artists interpreted the area. One piece of work particularly gabbed our attention, seeming to capture perfectly the shimmering light and peaceful waters. And so Mr Snail bought it for meĀ  and we brought home the wonderful “Dispersing Sea Mists” by Helena Emmans:

The photographs don’t do it justice, but it really does shimmer like the water. It is made using hand dyed threads wrapped around wood. A lovely memento of our holiday.
