No April Fool

These photos were taken on the 1st April. A snow shower covers the hills behind Scalloway. We would probably have thought this was an April Fool’s joke except this is Shetland and nothing is a surprise regarding the weather.

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.

The Real Film Star

I went up to Berry Farm, Scalloway where I met an American Film crew and contestants for The Amazing Race which is shown on American television. This little Shetland pony seemed mesmerised by all the comings and goings and just stood totally still for a long time. It was the ideal opportunity to get a close up photo of him. There was a little breeze blowing his mane making the image just right. I do hope we get a chance to see the finished American programme here in the Shetland Islands and hopefully this little chap will be in it too.

Same Calm Day Different Views

How often does this stillness occur in Shetland? Not often enough so it’s good to take advantage of it especially on camera. The first image was taken from Uradale looking out towards Trondra and beyond. And later that day the pale sunset was from Port Arthur, Scalloway and shows the small island called the Green Holm.

Colours of Home

These lovely terraced houses adorn the end of New Street, Scalloway, catching the late afternoon and evening sun. If it has been a particularly nice day at the beginning of February you can stand in this area and be blessed with a stunning sunset over Port Arthur.

Close Up Becoming Abstract

Two very different images – each a little abstract in their own way. The Scalloway Castle window with the sun shining in through the rust saturated stone and perspex window. The other is iron railings with smiley faced fish against the sun.
