Went into Lerwick to take photos of flowers in the Lerwick Jubilee Flower Park. Up sprang this rarity called Liam in front of me smiling in the sunshine. Liam is a superb gardener and has just been nominated by the Tutors at SRUC Elmwood College to receive the best SVQ level 3 parks, gardens and green spaces student award! A fine achievement for one so young.
I’m really not good at portraits but how can you go wrong with a subject like this. Flowers? What flowers?

Went for a wee run to Burra. This lovely Shetland pony was just standing in the field next to the fence. A gentle little breeze was blowing and I just had to stop the car and take some shots. Sometimes the Shetland ponies are quite filsket (Shetland word for frisky) and won’t stay still for a minute but this one was quite placid.
We were so blessed in Shetland, and it’s something I won’t forget, to have the rain clouds clear enough to let the sun through during the full Solar Eclipse. When the eclipse was complete the clouds came back but it didn’t matter as we were on a high from seeing and photographing the event. There is always a gull that photobombs in Shetland even on this occasion.
