An Orkney Sunset May 27, 2016

We do get the most amazing skies up here.  Clouds are usually coming and going, sometimes thick, sometimes wispy.  And this can make for rather nice sunsets.

Take the other night.  When I took Isla out for her evening walk about 8.30 it was spitting with rain, and the clouds were heavy and low, with the occasional break  This side of the bay faces due west, and there were holes in the cloud.

Incidentally, I also took some photos of the swans.  Just two now, looking like a male and a female.

When I got home I sat down to work as usual, but noticed the glorious view through the window.  For the next 45 mins or so, until about 10 pm, I periodically took photos from my chair.  I have cropped these, and removed the effect of the window glass, but have not edited them further.
