Most of November (Orkney's wettest for 10 years) and December so far have been under a lot of grey cloud and rain. There is an excess of water everywhere. So yesterday to see some bright sunshine was a sheer delight! Even if it was sub-zero temperatures! Above photo is of Hoy High, with the Orphir hills in the background.
A chilly view to Stromness but at least the sea is calm!
And the sun setting behind the Hoy hills....
The cloud looks like someone is walking over the Hoy Hills onto Graemsay! A giant perhaps! Or Paddington Bear?!
And this one looks like a giant rabbit!?
And here Button was looking at the sun wondering what I was I think, it's been a while since we've seen it! And although I am no domestic goddess, the windows are covered in salt spray - not dirt!
