I posted a reproduction of a postcard last week. The word 'postcard' stuck in my mind and I eventually realised that this was because I seem to be living in picture-postcard land. What do I mean by this? Over the last few days of lovely spring lighting (interspersed with some jolly rainstorms and brisk winds) I have encountered postcard-worthy views at every turn! Here are three examples, taken over the last 3 days as I was out and about. What a place Orkney is for photographers!
However, I'll start with my postcard of St Margaret's Hope. The Creel is slap-bang in the centre of the picture (of course😜). So I live in – and my guests can come to join me in – a picture postcard.😀😀😀
And now for 3 days' worth of postcards.
This was on Sunday
A view of Herston
Looking towards St. Mary's from Burray
At the end of an unnamed road on Burray. Find the spot here: 58°50'56.7"N 2°52'34.0"W
I like to take photos and am fond of clichés - so I'll say I find them to be worth a thousand words.
