Fire In The Sky

Sunset at Trondra. I don’t see this scene from where I live in Scalloway so I rely on looking out the window to see if the sun is setting on the hills at East Voe,  otherwise I would miss many a sunset. This one was taken on 5th June.

Norwegian Flag On Shetland Bus Memorial

This is the Norwegian flag that sits on the Shetland Bus Memorial in Scalloway. I took it against the sun on a windy day trying to capture the movement.

Shetland Bus Memorial, Scalloway, Shetland.

Taken at night this is a memorial which shows a model of the fishing vessel ‘Andholmen’ involved in the Shetland Bus operation during WWII. In the background is the former cruise ship ‘Gemini’ now an accommodation vessel for workers at Sullom Voe Oil Terminal.

Field Of Gold

On our way into Lerwick on 30th June, Victoria and myself saw this bright yellow field of marsh marigolds up a hill. We had to do a bit of climbing to get to it but it was worth it. Looking over Lerwick we saw the Celebrity Infinity cruise ship leaving. She is just one of the beautiful cruise ships to visit us annually.

Two Shetland yoals at the beach in Hoswick, Sandwick. Here’s a link for the yoal.

On to Bigton and St. Ninian’s Isle where I caught my daughter taking a photo of a wheatear.
