SunRISE and SunSET on the same day...



Well obviously the sun rises and sets on the same day but what I mean is these photos were taken on the same day!  A beautiful sunny day, warm out of the breeze. Mrs Orkney Flowers came over to help in the garden so I've been outdoors all day.  A little stiff and sore tonight but nothing a hot bath and a good night's sleep won't sort out!  More on gardening later..... for now enjoy the sun! (Sorry to those poor folk in the "south" who are experiencing terrible floods and more rain.....).

Above is the sunRISE behind the Hoy hills, across Hoy Sound and behind the Hoy High lighthouse.....

Below - my usual spot outside the "back door" looking towards the mouth of Scapa Flow

  3. Glorious sun events! The time between sunrise and sunset is a little like the time between birth and death ... a time to make the most of:)
