Story of the month
A Christmas Treasure Trove
In our midst, here on the west coast of Scotland, there be treasure.
The great west coast caledonian rain forests are an incredible source of life, the ultimate treasure. Even in the bleakest of months where other habitats have shut down, the oaks and other deciduous trees provide vital life and vibrancy. It is this ability to support life through out all the seasons that makes our native west coast woodlands so important to the future of Scotland and indeed ourselves.
Scotland: The Big Picture
These shots are the first attempts in my showcasing the pure energy and vitality of these magnificent habitats for Scotland: The Big Picture.
Unfortunately good weather has been a rare sight (one sunny day since my last newsletter) so my portfolio has not really kicked of yet but I thought I would show you some work in progress.
The insect shots were taken in Glasdrum nature reserve 20ft up in the canopy, with me perched over a very scary crag. I am yet to discover exactly what species I found up there but one is a millepede of some variety and the other is a caterpillar. Will update once I have figured it out.
The aerial shot is Taynish nature reserve.
These woodlands really are the life blood of the whole area and indeed a lot of what I do workshop wise. Lets get more!
