After a week of finalising our house move to Skye, I decide to visit Loch Cill Chriosd, where I spend much of my time during the autumn, winter, and spring seasons. As I gaze at the loch in strong sunlight, with vibrant summer colours, I realise how little time I have spent here, over the years, in the tourist season. I reflect on why, and it is because I like to work in quiet contemplation, without interruption, and I also prefer the colours and habitat of the loch in the other seasons. The reeds in summer are very prolific and dense and the patterns and reflections merge into a chaotic blur of vegetation. However, as I look at the specks of white on the surface or the water, I remember the times spent seeking out the rather sparse show of water-lilies evident in mid to late summer.
I enjoyed taking some movie stills earlier in the year and decide to focus on the movement of the reeds and the water on the loch in the beautiful summer sun. Here is an example:
My name is Alison Price and for the past ten years I have travelled the world photographing wildlife, including Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Botswana, the Canadian Arctic, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
