Nature’s Beach Abstracts

Sometimes it’s necessary to look at the smaller parts of a bigger picture. Nature excels in artistry. These were taken at Minn Beach, Burra, Shetland.

Nature’s Force And Beauty

Gorgeous waves over the hill near Hamnavoe Lighthouse. It wasn’t really windy but there was a swell coming in from the gales the previous days. I’ve posted these photos individually instead of in a gallery as they are all beautiful in their own way.

The Changing Faces of Shetland Weather

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.

It Shore Is Pretty

The sea around our shores can be awesome to watch in stormy weather. But beautiful doesn’t always have to be big. These small waves catching the low sun at Gulberwick look pretty appealing to me.

A Time Of Gales

The gales raged for over a month. These are some of the waves I captured during my less cowardly trips to the country.

Seaspray At The Cliffs

We’ve had more than a month of gales here. It has been restrictive regarding ferries and flights but has provided some splendid opportunities for brave photographers.

This one was taken at the cliffs beyond Minn Beach in Burra, Shetland.
