The landscape we call home is timeless: a patch of Scottish moorland dotted with sheep and cows, watered by a spring, blown by gales, sheltered by trees that were once a hedge. The land is still and swiftly moving all at once. The shifting patterns of October rain, wind, light, cloud and quiet create an ever-changing view. And when I choose to look, to really see, the panorama expands before me and I discover treasure in my everyday…in the familiar rhythms of life-as-normal.
All of these photographs were taken in the past couple of weeks, right outside our farmhouse. Sometimes I need to be reminded that there is beauty in our routine places. Maybe this has reminded you, too. Be encouraged.
