There's a lot of weather about!
We're not getting much in the way of snow though there are some heavy hail showers and even snow showers. But it's only settling on the hills, not lower down. Anyway Barry Jones of Lyness in Hoy has been up walking along the hills of Hoy and has kindly said I can use these stunning photos he took of the weather passing over Graemsay yesterday. They are fabulous shots I'm sure you will agree!
The photo above - the town of Stromness and the sheltered harbour basking in sun, but with a heavy shower approaching. And in the foreground - Graemsay out of the sun!
But wait! Sandside and the Hoy High Lighthouse have the sun shining upon us!
But just approaching...... aaah get inside quick!!
And this is my favourite shot of all. Stunning!
You can see in the foreground of the two last shots above snow covering the hill. And this is where Barry was walking.... Brr glad I was nice and snug indoors!
