The days are stretching, the skies on my drive home alive with light and a last burst of colour. I am learning the places where I might safely watch, and notice.

The sun was so bright on Friday that the world turned brilliant blue. We didn’t seem to have the words for it. ”Did you see how blue it was today?” ”I know, it was just so blue.”

The Scottish Landscape Photographer of the Year awards were announced this week. The pictures are stunning. They make me want to:

get outside!
climb hills!
look after this most beautiful planet!

(And boost my motivation not just to take but to share my photos.)
