The reworking of another picture earlier in my portfolio.

“18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him."

Scriptural source: The Gospel according to St. Matthew in the King James’ Authorized Version of the Holy Bible,chapter 4, verses 18 – 22.

The background to this artwork is Seilebost Beach on the Atlantic seaboard of the Isle of Harris, one of the largest islands in the Western Isles archipelago (formerly known as the Outer Hebrides). This group of islands is renowned for unspoiled natural beauty, immaculate beaches, a diversity of wildlife, mild summers with only three hours of darkness and relatively mild winters, given their position just below the Arctic Circle.

My life is divided between teaching Music and Photography. The instruments I play are organ, piano, clarinet and saxophone. I taught German and Spanish before my retirement, but since I got my digital camera no longer have time for them!

  • Thank you, Bill. You have set the words of Haydn’s “Creation” running through my mind! It is one of my favourite pieces of choral music.
