Two Birds In The Bush

Something happened to my website and I lost a load of photos from the posts which I then deleted. So I am backtracking a bit from my last post to November, 2015 when these two beauties graced my garden.

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.

Pure Gold

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, GeminiĀ  with the sun glancing off the port side.

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.

Sheep In Early Morning Mist

Very early one morning in May. The sun was trying to burst through the mist. Taken from my back yard with Berry Farm in the background. I love those mornings.
