From on high...

Sorry I've been silent for a few days. No I haven't been lazing in the sun or chilling out on the beach - though we have had *some* sun and warmth this week, but it was fleeting. I'm just catching up on work and other activities. But here is a photo from "on high" in the meantime. This was taken from the heather clad hills of Orphir on the Orkney mainland and you can see the small island of Graemsay with the island of Hoy and it's hills in the background.


  1. Just found your blog and enjoying your fantastic list of Scottish bloggers!

  2. What a lovely picture. That jewel-like blue and green is one of my most abiding memories of Orkney in summertime.

  3. Glad to hear from you again,
    great photo, you can never
    post enough of these.

  4. AHITH - Hallo! Lovely to meet you. I'm following your blog too with great interest!

    DB - I know i just love the colour of the sea in ORkney... it could almost be Mediterranean - (sighs dreaming of warmth..!)

    Pat - glad you enjoy the photos!
