I've shared this video each year since 2010, but it's so beautiful I think it is worth it. The film was taken by someone working in Orkney at the time going by the name of "Red Orkney". It was photographed from over on the path from Stromness to Warbeth, looking at Hoy, Graemsay and Stromness. We had LOTS of snow that year. None this year - it's VERY mild for the time of year, About 10 degress C. So no forecast for this Solstice.
And now the light returns and the days get longer!
And a real treat, a short video of the Merry Dancers (Northern Lights) by Premysl Fojtu, a very talented local photographer.
Note - um apparently 21st was the shortest day and 22nd the Winter solstice. Who cares, I get to dance on both days hee hee
