Photographers Wanted!

Sourcing all of the 170 - 180 images that are needed in order to do justice to the full spectrum of the Watershed, as it will be presented and celebrated in Nature`s Peace, provides budding photographers with a great opportunity to contribute to a book which will play a significant part in the John Muir Centenary. If you have a high res camera, really know how to use it, and can create dramatic images, this may be your chance to have something published.

Book 3 - Nature`s Peace is Taking Shape in the Year of Natural Scotland

As a full-colour hardback volume, it will provide a dramatic celebration of the landscapes of the Watershed of Scotland.

Events Programme Ends on a High

As yet more people hear of the very simple concept, and immense qualities of the Watershed in our landscapes, the clamour of interest grows inexorably. And so, with the final talk of 2012, to the Edinburgh Branch of the Saltire Society, as slide followed slide upon the screen, the enthusiastic reception was keen.The audience brought their passion for all things Scottish of course, and to that was added, an entirely new dimension to the geography of the country; a new-take on Scotland, no less.

Book Three in the Ribbon of Wildness Series is on the Stocks

Not content with two books on the Ribbon of Wildness (Watershed of Scotland) theme, a third is now under-way. The contract with Luath Press now hangs proudly above the author`s desk, and acts a reminder that there is a tight schedule and a lot of expectation.
