HY5051 : Swans on the Shore

taken 1 year ago, near to Holland, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Swans on the Shore
Swans on the Shore
Usually you see swans on fresh water, but these ones were exploring the shore. These are dipping strata of the Middle Old Red Sandstone that makes up most of Orkney, even though they are not at all red in colour. Most of the land in this square is on the Holm of Papa, a small offshore island, the tip of which can be seen at upper right in this view.
