The weather was truly inclement the other day so I purposely didn’t take the camera out to the car as I thought there wouldn’t be anything to photograph. I happened to notice a leaf stuck to the rain on the roof of my car so ran back to the house hoping that it hadn’t blown away before I got back. But there it was, stuck beautifully to the roof of Henrietta Honda.
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.
I came back from a walk up the hill at the back of my house. On reaching the wall I saw a pair of legs with shoes lying in the snow. I really got a fright and was scared to look for a torso. On further inspection I realised that it was the discarded ‘Guy’ from the bonfire which hadn’t taken place on November 5th. Phew!!!
