Orkney may do storms rather well, and good fun they are too. However, at other times – and they are not infrequent – Orkney can also present us with stunningly beautiful days. (And it is a curious Orkney fact that, although I am calling this post 'On a cold and frosty morning', it actually felt far warmer than on many an other day because the wind was light and wind-chill therefore minimal!). Yesterday, 29/12, was just such a day:
My favourite bench. On West Mainland, overlooking Holm Sound
The day was so lovely, we took a longer and longer route from home to Kirkwall, detouring through Toab, where the light on the fields was fantastic.
All pics taken with an iPhoneX. Come on Apple, how about some commission!
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
