I moved to Inverness in Scotland with my husband and two children 30 years ago this summer. The first weekend we went out along the southern shore of Loch Ness and discovered its magical charm. Since then we have returned countless times and seen it in so many different moods, in every season and every weather. Sitting on a rock beside the water absorbing the atmosphere is the best way to restore inner peace and tranquiliity.

The scenery of Scotland, especially the Highlands where I have lived, in Inverness, for the past 32 years, is my passion but I love photographing many other subjects as well. I hope you enjoy any of my photographs that you buy and they give you as much pleasure to look at as I have in taking them. Thank you. Please note that I do NOT give permission to pin, post or use my images in any way and retain full copyright of them.
