I don’t know what it was that triggered the thought, but I realised during the week that is 21 years since I moved to Scotland.

(I can’t remember the exact date, but it was the September / October of 1990).

In those 21 years I’ve lived in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Argyll, Stirling, and now the south west of Scotland.

As those of you who’ve followed my photos over the years will know: the landscapes of Scotland are etched into my heart, soul, and creative inspiration.

I thought I’d do something to mark this imprecise but significant anniversary: for your enjoyment, some thistle photographs, iconic symbol of Scotland.
