Shifting moods in the landscape

Fiona and I were fortunate to stay at a BnB on the main Orkney island where we could look out the window across fields, a loch, the Brodgar Circle of standing stones and the Isle of Hoy, it was a form of magic to watch a light snow storm dust the landscape.

And for another scudding shower closer to home dump a light dusting of small hail on us - layers.

And in five minutes it was a clear sky - magic.


  1. Magic, indeed! What a stunning place, Barry.

  2. But did you make it anywhere near your plot of land at the Laphroaig distillery? Had I known you were in the vicinity I would have enlisted you to visit mine as well. Cheers! - G

  3. Hi C and TT - thanks for you interest and comments. C - we were very surprised by Orkney and sure or at least hope to return. G - never quite made it to Islay - maybe next time. Peace. B
