Sunset



Now we are on "British Summer Time" sunset is at 7.38 pm....whoo hoo!!!  Sunrise is at 6.59 a.m. but I'm less concerned with that!  In mid-winter the sun set between the hills of Hoy to the left of the picture. I love tracking the sun across the sky over the seasons.

I'm always posting pictures of the Hoy Hills which are a lovely backdrop to Graemsay. Here is a short film of the island of Hoy. Very atmospheric and beautifully shot by Raymond Besant.  I can only provide a link as it's not on YouTube but do take a look here, it's only 3 or 4 mins long.

  1. Thank you for sharing the video link. I've been to Hoy twice, but the first time was only to visit the museum there. Second time we had more time and visited the Dwarfie Stane and Rackwick bay. Rackwick Bay was just amazing. We are returning to Orkney for our summer holiday this year - can't wait. Linda xxx

  2. Sigh ... Those cliffs with the birds draws me. That's the sort of thing I just love.

    'course I love the scenery of your small island too.

    1. Oh I LOVE sea cliffs! The ones on Hoy are the highest in the UK and are spectacular! As long as I don't have to climb them.....
