Welcome to Tranature

This is a quiet place for my nature photography, poetry and meditations in the Scottish Highlands.

My posts will give you a flavour of our encounters with the tranquillity of the forests, the ebb and flow of tidal rivers, the peace beside the pond.

We are blessed with many birds in the area, who mate for life. I greet and follow them through the seasons and I hope you will enjoy following their journey too.

My other blog, Whippet Wisdom, features poems and images inspired by our walks with our two adopted whippets Eivor and Pearl.

We are delighted that six haiku who first appeared on Tranature have since appeared in international haiku publications.

We published Sharing our Horizon, our first book to help raise funds for animal rehoming shelters, on 30th September 2018.

Our second book will be released in November 2019, so watch this space!

We hope you will enjoy walking through the seasons with us here.

With love, Xenia xxx
