I was up in Orkney last week photographing key sites for next year's Historic Scotland leaflets, brochures and guidebooks. It was a challenging shoot due to the micro climate which Orkney has. We could literally see the rain coming over the hill and within 2 minutes it would be on us and we would have to run for cover.
Scara Brae, the Neolithic Settlement was closed for part of the day we were there due to Force 9 winds. Fortunately there is a replica village built into the excellent visitor centre so we were able to get the shots we needed.
Great fun. Next year I think we should aim for May.
