A few pictures from Orkney

A few photos I took during a recent trip to Orkney. I’ve been there many times over the years, but this was the first time with a drone (Mavic Pro).

Looking north over the Ness of Brodgar approaching sunset.

Another shot of the Ness of Brodgar, with the Ring of Brodgar in the background.

One of the blockships, originally sunk to prevent German U boats sneaking into Scapa flow where the British fleet had a base during WW1: Wikipedia link
In the background is one of the Churchill barriers, built in 1940 to safeguard Scapa flow, but also conveniently to link up a number of the smaller islands.

I was a bit restricted in terms of time, so didn’t get an awful lot of time to fly, but there are plenty of other locations I’m looking forward to exploring again hopefully soon :slight_smile:
