Wim... every time you share your destinations I want to be you...foolish I know, but the affinity I feel for the places you seek out leaves me in envy. This time it was especially Mull for its anatomy and Iona for its architectural history. Ienjoy seeing what has drawn you...
each time it also makes me wonder if you ever came across a book authored by Dirk Vanden Hoorn...My copy appears to have taken a walk away from my small library, and your photography continually reminds me of the margins in your country...for the sense of place. If my memory serves Dirk combined drawings of old with realities of the present (which would have been c. 1980's). Do you investigate with your camera along the water at home, or is it no longer possible?
Always a pleasure to travel with you.
That crucifix is vision to the outside through a back wall or door?
Thanks for your comments Patricia! I will look into Dirk van den Hoorn - do you happen to have the actual title?
I have always been very interested in history and cultural differences; I also love being outdoors and get an understanding of the ecology of places.
In landscape photography it all comes together: every scene has several layers like geology, biology, history; colour, form, composition; emotional reponse and significance.
In that respect Scotland is a great country for this kind of photography.
The crucifix could be seen through the open chapel door. As the only metal object, it stands out in the dark chapel.
