Beauty is within grasp... open your eyes and you'll see it

 View from the north side of the Abbey, looking east across the snow covered Burg and Ben More on Mull
 The Abbey from the south east corner, in breathtaking morning sunlight on my way to Bishops House for communiona
 The sunrise over Fionnphort, Mull
 St Oran's chapel, the oldest of the Abbey buildings, with a dusting of snow and low winter sunlight
 Amazing shadows from the high nunnery walls
Edinburgh Castle at the end of November, looking majestic with the bright blue backdrop
