I love the stark expanse of landscape in all these shots, the inconsequence of humanity; and also a certain sense of mystery…

  1. Wow. You have really captured that celtic feel. The first shot is almost scary but then mysterious and inviting at the same time.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne. I think it was the perspective on that first shot that somehow gives it some edge. Entirely accidental I should say, like most events that involve me and my Kodak Easyshare.

  2. Bravo! That first photo alone definitely puts you on the edge of either a romance novel or a who-done-it waiting only for you to provide the words, plot and characters. Thanks for sharing your work. Good luck with that suggested novel idea Tish. 🙂

  3. How are you, Tish?
    Great photos you have posted, my friend. You are an acute photographer. Speaking of the inconsequence of humanity, I was looking at a photo of space from NASA the other day in which countless stars are glittering in a vast bleak space. It is impossible to tell which one of them is earth, or that one of them has life in it. It was disconcerting. I thought of us, of our vanity, our deeds, our dreams, and I realized how insignificant we really are in the scheme of things. We are already in space, suspended like dust in a room, but we speak of conquering space as though we are out of it, far from it. I saw an ant drowning in a tiny drop of dew one day, and I thought that for the ant the dew is probably like a large pool of water that is impossible to cross. So that all these that we think are vast and great might not be so, after all.
    Have a great weekend.

    1. Peter, this comment of yours is a stunning piece of writing. It has the makings of a short story, and one without full bloodied horror. It is so perceptive, and the imagery so evocative. Write me something. I’ll send you my email address via Twitter messaging – should you wish a) to do this and b) show it to me.
      And you too have a fine weekend. Cheers.
