Sunsets In Caithness
There can be little doubt
that the location of Caithness in the far north surrounded by sea on two
sides and relatively flat or at least rolling landscape makes for side
open vistas. The sky and views of it are commented on often by
artists who live in the area and more often by visiting artists who are
unaccustomed to such frequent changes of colour and mood as seen in the
skies over and around the county. Words to describe a large sky seem
odd but the words "Big Sky" come up often when looking for adjectives.
The sky sometimes does seem very big in the county and that is perhaps the
nature of an area that can look far out to sea on a clear day or over the
moors into mist, fog rain, snow, and brilliantly clear sunshine through
the clear sea air or low hills with their peat and heather covering.
But if you are on the look out there are some great sunsets that you need
to be in place to see as they can be gone in 20 or 30 minutes.
