1st Swim

at Midday. perfect conditions

towels drying in the afternoon mist

Friday, 18 July 2014


starlings on the roof

red marigolds

the stamens on St John's wort flowers

windmill spinning in the strawberry patch

to deter the birds

Dawn's Exhibition

sea like a great lake, so still

Dawn's woven landscape

and golden needle

it's quiet in St Margaret's Hope

In Kirkwall the pipers are on the Linkspan
playing to 7.000 tourists come into town
 from the cruise ships

return to Sanday
