Inside this issue
sponsored by ..
The end of lockdown has meant this summer has allowed us to catch up with family and friends, making up for over a year of Zoom and Facetime. This has been wonderful and up in the Highlands here we’ve had mostly wonderful weather.
This has meant lots of days outside walking, climbing, swimming etc but it has also meant lots of time in between visitors catching up with work. Just as our series of guests have parted, Scotland’s rainy season arrived and so we’ve had a little more time indoors. This has come at an opportune time for me as I’ve had a pile of books arrive over the last couple of months that I want to review for On Landscape.
First off, this month we have received Eric Bennett’s “Conversations with Nature” but over the next few issues, I’ll also be reviewing books by Wayne Suggs, Guy Tal and Arild Heitmann. Between them (and I have been dipping into all of them at the same time) I’m getting all inspired for our burgeoning Autumn colour. If you have any books that you’ve enjoyed recently, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The camera has been part of some of the most powerful, emotional, contemplative, and consequential experiences in my life. more
On his Instagram feed, this man of science reveals a love of words and writing; here he talks about finding his voice, images that whisper, and the impact this is having on his life. It is clear he has found his passion. more
In photography, we can at least embrace the process of actively looking for the unexpected. That will give opportunities to expand the range of possibilities that our eyes permit us to see. more
We spent a week in the Kebnekaise mountains. Here you'll find Sweden's highest and most well-known peak, Giebmegáisi. When people in the early twentieth century realised that this was the highest mountain in the country, tourists started finding their way to the area. more
