Solarie Clips

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.

Beauty And The Beach

This beautiful docile horse stood facing me with the low bright sun shining through it’s windblown mane. Onwards to Minn Beach and a bottle filling with sand as the wind was whipping up little sand storms. I waited for the wind to cease a little before taking a shot.

Cloud Drama

An unusual evening at Hamnavoe where the sun was shining from the west and storm clouds were looming in the east. They didn’t come to anything although I was prepared for running to the car at a moments notice to avoid a drenching.

As I was focusing on the setting sun a man appeared as if on cue and brought the photo to life.

Tingwall Loch, Shetland.

A rare February calm. Days like this gelp get us through the winter. We (myself and my daughter) scared a large flock of geese which we didn’t see in time. They flew off with just a couple of seconds to capture them.

Sunset At Hamnaove

I have neglected my blog for a long time but will try and catch up a bit. This photo of a Hamnavoe sunset was taken June 2013. Hamnavoe Lighthouse on the left. Hoping for more of the same to counteract the dreadful gales and rain we’ve been having.
