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.

A long awaited sunset at Trondra. Haven’t had enough of these this year. Maybe there’s still time.

Nature’s Beach Abstracts

Sometimes it’s necessary to look at the smaller parts of a bigger picture. Nature excels in artistry. These were taken at Minn Beach, Burra, Shetland.

A lovely sunset in March viewed with pleasure and photographed from East Voe, Scalloway. The second image shows the former cruise ship, now an accommodation vessel, Gemini  with the sun glancing off the port side.

The Changing Faces of Shetland Weather

There’s A Storm Brewing

Shetland is maybe not the place to be in winter for someone addicted to photography especially if landscape is your genre but extremes of weather bring opportunities too. On a typical windy, and eventually rainy, day recently I went to Meal, Hamnaove to see what could be captured. As the sun was setting the wind picked up and started blowing the tops off the waves. The waves weren’t huge but I liked the colours the sun provided at that moment. On turning round I was a little perturbes to see what was looming up behind me. The sun shining on the winows of the house made it look ghostly. A couple of quick shots and I was in the car and heading home.

The Lows And Highs Of Photography

These images were taken at Burra. The first was from the safe ground level of Minn Beach and the second necessitated lying flat as I was so near the cliff edge.

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.
