Exciting new book release

The Silver Dark Sea by Susan Fletcher has been released today, and is available in both hardcover and Kindle formats. Sue is a good friend of mine and I had the privilege to work with her in Glencoe for two years. Some of her previous books have won awards, and one of them in particular, Witch Light, is a powerful evocation of Glencoe’s unique character.

If I had to sum up her writing style in one word, I’d probably label it ethereal–it’s beautiful stuff to read and her stories are also truly insightful.

I’ve only just started The Silver Dark Sea but will be writing a full review when I’ve finished it!

What survives in the record: a Glen Coe hill day from 15 years ago today

Every now and again, I dip into my Lightroom library and journals, curious to see what I was doing 10, 15, or 20 years ago on this day. On the 6th of April, 2009, my brother James had just arrived in Glen Coe and was keen to experience these mountains

Some phone pictures from a sunny hill weekend (and a few thoughts on photo note-taking)

And now for something completely different. If you want to understand my approach to photos as a working outdoor writer then 35mm film (which I gush about on this blog all the time) is only a third of the story. Another third is my full-frame digital camera – no surprises there.

Maybe the web used to be better than it is now

I am spending less time on Instagram and more time in the old-fashioned blogosphere (via my RSS reader) once again, because I increasingly dislike what Instagram does to my brain. And I increasingly wonder if the internet was actually better and more diverse when more of us posted updates regularly
