I run, walk, clamber and explore place. I notice, connect and witness the ferocity, and also the calm, of this landscape.
Reflecting a reminder of why we should care: how the wild nurtures and protects.
On the edge - witnessing these wild places.
Living on the West coast of Scotland, I run, walk, explore, draw on the edge. Raw elements clashing against each other. Beauty: ferocious and wild, calm and sublime.
Shaped by air - pathways feet have taken.
My experience of high places in all their ancient enormity. Running on ridges, growing up looking at Ben Cruachan, mountains are an enduring part of this land I call home. I find space on a mountain top, air to breathe.
Held within - ancient forests, spaces created, nurturing, surviving.
Old friends and characters, these trees we walk beside. Rhythm, growth, energy, surrounding and enduring.
