You may remember the earlier blog post about author and fisher, Sarah Drummond featuring images I'd taken of her and her dog Selkie at their remote hideaway in early autumn. I had driven home thinking about Sarah, completely at home in the elements...in her element, content in the isolation that others might consider to be desolation. I returned for another visit over winter really wanting to capture more of that. As I pulled up at Sarah's door, the dark skies started to brighten and we were treated to the most beautiful late afternoon light that was entirely unexpected, and completely perfect for photos out on the inlet. Afterwards, as we'd done the last time, we cooked by candlelight and sat outside, rugged up against the elements, sharing a bottle (or two of wine) and talking. This time around though we were joined by our mutual friend Jo who we both love to bits and don't see nearly as often as we'd like. At first light the following morning, I crept out with my camera and Selkie to keep me company, and discovered a world that extended no further than the rocky outcrop 20 metres from the shore of the inlet. As Jo and Sarah wondered out to greet the day, the heavy fog was slowly becoming mist as the sun tried to break through, and before long it turned into one of nature's magical moments as a white rainbow formed in the mist and very gradually took on its colours as the minutes passed.

Sarah's last book, Salt Story, received critical acclaim and her new book, The Sound, has just been launched. You can check out Sarah's website and blog here - http://sarahdrummond.org
