My soul moves like the stormy sea
in tides of hope and sorrow
my feelings are the waves to be
washed on the shores on the morrow.
What is left in the sand of my life
is cleansed of hardship and vanity
is unburdened of mind and of strife
and left to the winds of profanity.
Floating vessels are toys of my mind
are shipping in the distance of question
the birds in the sky with their music so kind
give peace to my heart’s digression.

A pretty view towards Edinburgh castle to all the support that you give me here!
Without you I couldn’t do that!

Crossing the Clyde in Glasgow offered me a splendid view of the new quarter with Arc and Science museum and the new housings erected here.

After visiting Kildrummy, I made my way to other castles such as Huntly in Aberdeenshire. It is a ruin but still worth a visit because many fine stone carvings of the facade and the covings of the fireplaces still exist. THis photographic painting shows tha back of the castle with a place for distilling beer.

Normannic similarity and unusual architecture offers serene Kildrummy Castle in East Scotland, close to some other fine castles. It’s a bit off track but walking is fine in these parts. Here I focused on the mowed lawn and the different kinds of clouds.You can still see the merging line for this panorama.

Crovie was almost completely destroyed by a huge storm in 1953, but today it consists again of some 20 houses, mostly used for the weekend. The fishing industry has long decreased.

The famous Bowstreet in Edinburgh edited as oil on canvas painting at night and as HDR.
This is also painting No. 50 which I’ve published here. Thanks to all the likers and followers! I appreciate your support very much!
A court in Falkirk Castle. This is one of my older digital painting, no hdr effect used here before retouching, so it’s a bit rougher.
Ben Lomond seen above Loch Lomond with the old ship “Maid of the Loch” piered on the banks. I visited the frozen lake in early spring while the weather became warm but everything was still frozen.
Hitchiking through Scoptland is still an adventure and you can get to such nice villages as Aberdour at the Eastern Coast with its nice Castle and old graveyard
