I was up in Orkney at the beginning of the week to photograph sites for next year's Historic Scotland brochures and guide books. Like the previous years, the weather was challenging with only about a minute and a half of sunshine between the horizontal rain. Luckily the second day was better resulting in the shot above taken at the magnificent Ring of Brodgar.
If you haven't been, I would recommend a visit. It is a fantastically varied group of islands with plenty to see and do, including a number of sites cared for by Historic Scotland. More info here.
