Sky.....



Sorry for "radio silence" - been off on my annual visit to family in Guernsey.  No photos of that trip - it's a time to focus on family.

Anyway back now and here are some photos from earlier in July.  Sky - there's a lot of it about in Orkney.  One of the things I love about the low lying land (apart from a few hills!) are the huge vistas, big skies......  Here are a selection of photos mostly taken from the "back door" of the sky in evening/night.

Same view as above but on another evening....


And again....


And yet again!


This is a panorama taken with my iphone and it gets a bit distorted in perspective, but gives you a flavour of the scene...


When I go outside to take sunset photos Button has to come along.  She worries when I go out in the evening I think.  Maybe she thinks I'll steal all her mice?



And here is a sunset from Sandside Bay just along from the house...


And the night sky - this was taken about midnight.


And sunrise (this was about 4am).....

  1. Really beautiful skies. So it doesn't really get dark, even at midnight? :o

    By the way, we were missing Button's pics :p
