Mull Head in the parish of Deerness, on Orkney’s East Mainland, is a nature reserve with some lovely walks along the tops of the sea cliffs that face out towards the North Sea and Scandinavia beyond. As you can see from the shots below we were blessed with the weather when we went for our walk:
Even though it is a nature reserve you will notice a distinct lack of bird and small animal shots – that isn’t because we didn’t see any, it’s simply because I didn’t capture any. In my defence, most of the time, the subject was just too far away for my 70-200mm to do it justice. This is something I intend to correct with the purchase of a longer telephoto zoom – when I get round to making a decision that is!! Of course, on other occasions, it was simply down to my lack of skill/speed.
