Summer skies and sunsets.....

One of the things I love about Orkney is the big skies! With such a low lying landscape the sky is HUGE and the clouds make wonderful patterns day or night.  Above is a photo of the Hoy hills snuggled under a cloud blanket. As you can see Graemsay was in bright sunshine.

A sunset a few weeks ago. I love the reflection running to meet the shore.

A molten sunset.

Meanwhile one of the girls was still out and about enjoying a late summer evening snack! (This was about 10pm). Because there are no foxes or other predators on the island the hens can be totally free range and as you can see they really enjoy themselves!

I love the light over the still water to Stromness.

Stromness in shadow. The Hamnavoe having returned from the evening sail from Scrabster and moored in the harbour for the night.

The old buildings and reaper against the backdrop of the setting sun.

a reflection of the Stromness hills and shore in the conservatory windwow......

And the sun drops down below the horizon once again.
