Sun and Cloud

I've had visitors over the last few days, so while I catch up and sort out some photos, here is a slight interlude (the BBC used to have "interludes" during transmission when I was a child - usually a potter's wheel or horses ploughing.....).

Above is Stromness in the sunshine - you can see that many houses along the harbour front have piers. This harks back to the days when almost every house had a boat. The houses on the other side of the street to the harbour would have access rights to the piers too.

Below - the mist is actually over some land - Stenness and Orphir have disappeared!

Below is a sky-scape. I love clouds!

And here we have a marsh orchid, that was actually growing in the bank down at the pier on Graemsay!

Normal service (or what passes for it on this blog!) will resume shortly......
