Weekly Photo Challenge: It Is Easy Being Green

black whippet in green coat on snowy mountain trail

It is still cold in the mountains and new life begins to show within the tree line. The scent of pine is so fresh in the breeze and promises a new beginning. Up here we walk for miles without meeting a soul. Yet we never feel alone. The capercaillie’s mating call echoes in the distance. We feel the mountain’s heartbeat, the love from the old wise trees.

peaceful devotion
lifetime rooted in one place
arms open wide

    1. Thank you Helen, yes it is a wonderful sound! After a few mild days we are back to sleet and snow and this will pass again by the weekend. If your trip to the Highlands takes you near Inverness when we are around and you fancy meeting up for a coffee feel free to drop me an email โ˜บ

      1. I just saw this clip and the man was agitating the bird and walking right up to his nest. We always stick to the paths and trails during the nesting season and do not walk through the heather where the birds have made their home.
