The West Pier after the storm

[The West Pier, before high tide. Unless I am mistaken, that is my old friend Nigel Reid on the left, looking on.

This picture shows the sea and tide conditions at the pier on Wednesday 12th January, after the hurricane force winds of the previous night. A little later the Ayre Road partially flooded, but far worse was the flooding in Stromness, the Hope and Holm Village. If the wind had been to the north it would have been bad news for big chunks of Kirkwall - Steven]

It is indeed Nigel Reid.
