A small series of closeup studies in flowing water, taken on a stroll around the Falls of Bruar. I’ve admired the striation lines in the psammite riverbed below the lower bridge at the Falls many times – yet every visit they’re still fascinating every time.

And so, in a spirit of investigation, I went to St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow. There were lights all around the rood screen and candles; the Blessed Sacrament was processed around the aisles in glory; there […]
