travels : a splendid october // scotland + england

Scotland-England-landscapes0056

“For Your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in Your faithfulness.” Psalm 26:3

I’ve had much to be grateful for in this shining year, and this trip was a special gift. It was gutsy and spontaneous and seemed entirely illogical, but was an incredible way to live an October.

My home base was in Glasgow’s West End with Scotland’s hottest couple, and from there I took trips east to Edinburgh, south to Birmingham, and west again to the Isle of Skye. These mountains and misty coastlines do something special to my heart, and getting to photograph a few dream shoots (all for the love) made it beyond everything ever. (see them here, here, and here!)

These are some frames from the windowseats and infinite views, and a little video at the end too from all the everydays.

I feel like i just took a trip through Scotland from my living room. that was an amazing video, also the whole time i was watching/listenin i was thinking that really sounds like something dale clay would write…sure enough! its so exciting to see all the adventures you go on! also, theres always a place for you in nashville if your ever in the area!

So magical! I love all your photos ๐Ÿ™‚

oh mighty God, what majesty you make.

as one who has not made it to scotland just yet, this was a staggeringly beautiful representation of the countries wildness and allure. thank you (so).

my romantics heart was brimming over and torn apart by all the scenes from train windows, train platforms, stations and signs. i’ve been breathless until i’m forced to gasp-exhale.

also. that boat get’s me every time and i think often that it is only i dream that i’ve met you in the flesh. you are so enchanting.

[…] shift and frolicking by the sea in England in March to the city streets and crumbling bookstores of Glasgow this October, their lives have been such a gift to my […]
