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.

Small Boat In Trondra Sunset

Well, we have had another nice sunset here in Shetland. Taken from my usual place on Trondra.

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

Happiness is…..

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?

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.

A Perfect Model

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.

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.
