The light caught my imagination on the way hame yesterday, I had to stop and take a photo or two, why not I thought, I'm not rushing. It's time for hame, I can take a wee minute to have a peep at the view. It should never be taken for granted, its gorgeous and breathtaking. And while we do all live under the same skies often we don't see passed what's under our noses and we don't look up. Today I looked over and up, breathtaking.
Islanders often 'commute' through the most amazing scenery to get on and about their daily business. I'm no exception. I live 12 miles from the 'city' of Kirkwall, where I sometimes work at the local college, or do a bit of gardening for a couple of folk, when free from womble duties. Well, no surprise here, popped into town after a cuppa with a chum, drop off of eggs (and a whirl of my down jacket through her tumble drier, thank you very much). And, then, I got royally sucked into work yesterday, which was fun (captured by plants, not wombles for a change), you know I don't think I'm over this gardening lark..........Jacqui over on the isles at the other side of Scotland, I thought I'd share it with you all. It the last part of my commute home, its beautiful, changable, leaves me calmer and enriched, every time I see it.
The view to the right, straight ahead, the island of Hoy, Graemsay nestled in front where we wave to our friend Sian, sunshine, stormy seas and a peep at the edge of Stromness, the second largest town here( and where my 'other' work is based - Womble HQ).
