*Simmer dim: midsummer nightlong twilight in the northern isles
I was driving home from a concert the other night and it was close to midnight. The solstice skies were so stunning I decided to take the scenic route home and take a few pictures. All photos taken with an iphone and no filters needed. Pictured below are the standing stones of Stenness against a stunning sky backdrop. These Neolithic stones are thought to be the oldest henge site in the UK. Further along the road is the Ring of Brodgar a circle of standing stones like these ones. I decided not to photograph them as there is work going on there at the moment and the scaffolding meant the photo lacked a certain something.
The Bay of Skaill sits a mile away form my home and I can see it from my sitting room and kitchen window. The views from my home are breath taking and I never tire of them.
This is a panoramic view of the same place
At midnight the garden view looked like this
The following night I was driving home late again and snapped a few more.
