Silent Sunday: Forks in the Road

barricades with sand bags blocking the coastal path beside a wild sea
big waves on the Moray Firth seen from the shore

These images were taken a day after Storm Arwen when some of the roads and paths were still closed for safety reasons.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends further east and everyone else who has been affected.

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday and may you all stay safe,
