Shifting weather

That's one thing in Orkney, the weather is forever shifting, sometimes all the seasons in one day, whatever time of year!  But that is one of the things I just love about the place. This groups of pictures were either taken from my "front door" or out the "back door" over the last week. Cloud, sunset and mist changing the mood of the landscape.

Hoy wearing a "hat" just as the sun is beginning to set in the West .....(sunset tonight is 10pm.)

And here, with a change of wardrobe, is Hoy wearing a covering of mist....

 Meanwhile out the back door...... Sunset among cloud (last week)

And tonight's misty offering.....

The West side of Graemsay has disappered under a mist bank.....

And the wee town of Stromness has drawn a veil over herself....... well a lass likes some privacy now and again and is probably recovering from a weekend of partying as it was the Orkney Folk Festival. More of that later....

And now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go and put my feet up and watch the sun set!


  1. what a wonderful place.Wish it was like that here.We have such a boaring weather:)

  2. If it wasn't for the very different landscape, you could be in Nova Scotia.

  3. I'd love to see Orkney again.

  4. Sian - Your BlogSpot is wonderful! What lovely pictures! You live in an awesome place!


  5. Gorgeous. It's been a very mixed spring, hasn't it, with rather more cloud than sun south of the border.
