Sunshine and mist!

After the snow we had some glorious sunny weather for a few days. But often with the sun comes the haar - the sea mist. I love the ethereal beauty of it.  Here are a few photos I took very quickly on my way down to the pier last week.  Above looking East towards Hoy, the Golden Marianna (our replacement ferry while our usual vessel is away having an "MOT") is disappearing into the mist. Hope it's not like "Brigadoon" - I need to get to town!!

Looking down the Flow - or not!

Again over East, over the top of Clett, the small croft house, with the Hoy Hills just poking above the mist.

Looking over towards Orphir - er I think! Sun shining high in the sky soon burned the mist off.

Graemsay Shore....

And Hoy High Lighthouse appearing from the mist..... Stromness is in there somewhere!!
