Harray Landscape, Orkney

The district of Harray, Orkney I love the feeling of space and the light in this image of Harray.  The clouds are full of life, too!  One of the things I love about Orkney is the constantly changing play of light on the land and numerous lochs and sea. “One can appreciate & celebrate each […]

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney, in mist. It was a rather misty, chilly day on this visit to the amazing Ring of Brodgar, but the energies around the stones were beautiful.  The ring is classed as a henge and is, for me, at the heart of Orkney, and one of the wonders of the British Isles.  […]

Filtered light, St Magnus, Orkney

Light filters through the western window, St Magnus cathedral, Kirkwall, Orkney I’m just back from a few days on the Orkney Islands, part of a wonderful trip with master dowser Michele Fitzgerald. I’ve learnt a lot in just a few days, and if you are serious about consciousness, health, and personal transformation, I can thoroughly […]

Skaill bay, orkney

Skaill bay, Orkney

Skaill bay, Orkney, at sunset. An image from my last trip to Orkney a couple of years ago.  This was an experimental image with an exposure time of 2 seconds to slightly blur the wave motion.  I’ll leave you to imagine the biting cold wind – but I love the colours. I liked this quote […]

Skaill Bay, Orkney

Skaill Bay on the West Mainland of orkney, experiencing a sparkly moment… it was even quite warm for a while! “My life is like a stroll on the beach…as near to the edge as I can go.” – Thoreau. “Consciousness: that annoying time between naps.” – Unknown.

Maes Howe, Orkney

A trip to Orkney, the islands to the north of the Scottish mainland.  A rather cool week, with rain, mist and a cold Northerly wind!  Luckily there was some sunshine too.  Being midsummer, it was light all night long even with the grey cloud.  The depth of silence at night was beautiful, surrounded by burbling […]

Birsay Snowstorm

Birsay, Orkney Here’s one from this time last year.  Birsay “beach” with a snowstorm coming in from the North.  I’m amazed these photos came out, with trying to stand upright on slippery rocks in a snowstorm with flying sea-spray.  The camera certainly needed some TLC afterwards! The island of Rousay in the distance, catching a […]

Brodgar Snow Sunset

The Ring of Brodgar, Orkney – Winter Sunset. I thought you could do with another image from the Ring of Brodgar on Orkney from last week, this time with a much more wintry feel! It suits the weather today, which after some warm days in the week (and my daffodils are finally in flower), is […]

Brodgar Sunset

The Ring of Brodgar, Orkney – Winter Sunset. I headed to Orkney this last week, playing with all of the elements.  Blizzards and drifting snow, with a rather arctic windchill, followed by spring days of perfect sunshine and blue skies – and no wind whatsoever – the Orcadian equivalent of snow in the Sahara!  Everywhere […]
