  2. That Stones of Stenness first photo really struck me – I love the simplicity (and of course, the sky). Interesting story behind that link too – and I think you’re right – sheep backrub!

      Yes, it does work well, doesn’t it. Perhaps I should make a print of that one. It would be nice to have a lot of time in a place like that and take even the same shot in a variety of weather conditions, in darkness and in light.
