The Ring of Brodgar

April 10, 2014


... or "Orcadian Stonehenge".... 

A mysterious 5000 years old stone circle.
It's a very impressive sight when you drive along the wide mainland of Orkney towards these stones, 
whose edged silhouettes poke into the low hanging clouds.



I wish I had more time to capture all these colours: green of the already fading thistles, the purple-blue of the moorland, hints of yellow, shades of red...


Sitting here, watching one of these amazing Orcadian sunsets must be mesmerizing.




Mr Isbister. 1881.




 And you are never really alone. :)
