Bubbles of Light

Dew on the grass which looked like bubbles when the sun shone through it. As I said in a previous post the miniature aspect of nature’s art can be found anywhere if you look close enough.

Artwork In Nature

Dandelion seeds after a shower. The sun shone creating little prisms and background bokeh. We sometimes need to take a closer look at natures miniature artwork.

Small Boat In Trondra Sunset

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

About A Buoy

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

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, Gemini  with the sun glancing off the port side.

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.

The Lows And Highs Of Photography

These images were taken at Burra. The first was from the safe ground level of Minn Beach and the second necessitated lying flat as I was so near the cliff edge.

Same Calm Day Different Views

How often does this stillness occur in Shetland? Not often enough so it’s good to take advantage of it especially on camera. The first image was taken from Uradale looking out towards Trondra and beyond. And later that day the pale sunset was from Port Arthur, Scalloway and shows the small island called the Green Holm.
