visit to the cliffs of yesnaby proved again, that the nature has it's own course and if you're hoping for good photos - don't be disheartened by big grey skies, just wait a bit :)

it was a bit of a drive to yesnaby, but when we arrived to the small car park at the end of the road, we already knew it was going to be good :) it was very windy, but everyone living in Scotland knows that wind brings sudden changes in weather and light :) soon enough we witnessed just that - moody light, sudden bursts of sunshine and back to grey
and the roar of the sea was mighty. we both felt very impressed by this cliffs of yesnaby

Lovely photos! I was there myself earlier this year, but totally failed to do it the justice that it deserved, you've captured it beautifully!
