So my next project is decided. Hopefully if the weather is fine I am booked on the last landing trip of the season. The gannets will shortly be leaving for feeding grounds off west Africa for the winter. This drawing came from a previous visit a couple of years ago and it is only now that I think I might be able to meet this desolate basalt rock face on. In fact despite its proximity to Edinburgh it has to be one of the wildest places I have ever visited – an inverse to Rannoch Moor in so many ways and yet Bass Rock is another landscape where humans are absent, a place where we have no business. It is this spirit that connects these places and one where I will try and get to an understanding of sorts if that is possible. I am looking forward to the challenge.

Good for you Dominique. I have so enjoyed following your work over the spring and summer. Planning to visit your exhibition in Gullane tomorrow. Looking forward to it very much.

Thanks Sheila, yes itching to get going in this one. It’s what I needed to drag myself away from Rannoch Moor. Hope you enjoy the exhibition, Alan at the gallery has done a great job, looks great alongside the work of Ann Cowan. x
Magnificent! Looking forward to seeing what emerges. Was great to chat to you in Gullane.
