The weather has been awful this spring and summer. Cold and very wet. But there have been a few nice days, and some interesting skies. These are a few photos taken on my everyday dog walks.
One walk takes us along a track running above the harbour. The nearer pier is used by commercial boats while the link span (for the ferry) is the one further back.
On a different day, the light was completely different. The island of Fara with the Hoy hills behind.
I had visitors one day, and the ‘guns’ were very popular!
I often park here, and walk along the track. The views over to South Walls are always changing with changing weather. This is one of the two Martello towers under the sun’s spotlight….
…. and on another day it was the lighthouse which was highlighted.
One beauty of constantly changing weather is the rainbows. One day the bow was spectacular, with very bright colours.
It was a full bow, and this was the other end:
A few yards further on I got a better view of what was actually at the end of the rainbow. An Arctic Skua!
The weather hasn’t always been bad. One evening we went out quite late and the Highland cattle were grazing close to the path.
I cannot resist taking loads of photos of these animals! All have slightly different shaped horns….
Then over the horizon came the bull. So here is a family group!!
And finally, for those of you on Ravelry I thought I might change my Ravitar for the summer. Not much difference!!
