On the Orkney Islands, there are many old stone houses that were simply left and then fell into disrepair.
They have become part of the landmarks and made for good photo opportunities.
We were fortunate to witness such a beautiful sunset that evening too.

Thanks for looking. Ute

Hey Ute,

Pretty cool! Man... to be able to fix up one of those old houses though and live there? That would be cool.

Hi Jim
some people do that now but most are used as barns.

Nice one Ute - The backlit grasses add a warm texture to the scene.

Ute,

Beautiful image. The sunset colors are fantastic and I love the comp. Just feels very peaceful and quiet.

and put TONS of insulation! It's gotta be freezing cold in the winter.

that is a pretty wild shot, wonderful Ute.
I was in Great Britain back in college for a couple weeks. I really wanted to get up to the islands, but starting from London, we only made it up as far as Inverness before turning back.
I really want to start in Scotland next time and head up to the outer islands some day.

Thank you all for your comments!
The Northern Isles are really worth a visit. Pretty magical area.
It is surprisingly mild in the winters, hardly ever below freezing due to the Golf stream. The wind is a killer though.

Beautiful image, Ute. There are quite a few of these old croft houses scattered about the highlands and islands, a sad reminder of the clearances. I definitely regret not making it as far north as Orkney, it seems like a truly magical place.
