Every now and then the landscape will reveal elements of itself in all sorts of ways. On this day, it covered itself in a veil of mist and ice under the winter’s wonderful diffused light.

Here, on top of the Ochil Hills, the Wallace Monument was the only element of Stirling that was revealed. Truly an amazing sight.

It is sights like this where the moment stays with you for the rest of your life. A scene that takes your breath away. A scene that almost defines who you are and why your here on this spinning rock.

Looking out over this sea of cloud, the hardness of the world are a million miles away and with the sound of your own breath and heartbeat brings home how things could be if we just try.

Saviour the moment – it soon passes.

This is the landscape version. Please click here for the portrait version – had difficulty deciding which to upload!
