While everyone in the rest of the UK was having non-stop rain we were in Orkney where we had some lovely days on the beach.

One such beach was Rackwick Beach on west side of Hoy (red arrow above).  It was breathtakingly beautiful!


I had a marvelous afternoon playing about with the camera, the light, subject matter.  These 2 photos above are mine of (1) the kids in tidal pool on long stretch of sand and (2) an oystercatcher (L)  and a gull who were beach residents.

John took lots of gorgeous shots with various types of lenses. These are all his below. There are lots more Orkney photos of the high standard shown here on his Flickr site here.

This one of Alastair and Ishie building a sand castle is one of my Top 5 Favourites!  (More to follow in subsequent posts!)
