Iona

- when in some future time I shall sit in a madly crowded assembly with music and dancing round me, and the wish arises to retire into the loneliest loneliness, I shall think of Iona - Mendelssohn - Glasgow August 10, 1829 Iona is so very special - a magical island of rare peace and exceptional beauty … a refuge for the heart and soul … a tonic for the mind … The most recent images were made during a visit to the island in May 2017, enjoying spells of the most gorgeous silver light shining across marram dunes and ruffled sea ~ precious moments spent watching terns, divers, mergansers and gannets fishing in the silver blue Sound ~ a tranquil early morning with pipits atop Dun I ~ and colourful daydreams amongst the bluebells by the Abbey and St Oran's Chapel, sparkling in warm sunshine after showers. More Iona images appear in the Hebridean Abstracts, Monochrome Hebrides, and Plant Details Galleries, and also as projects on Behance.
