Well this week we have already had three couples round to view the house, with one spending 35 mins looking round we thought they might be interested but all three came back with a no. Its proving frustrating as we want to move to Shetland asap and there is a couple of houses in the southern mainland we would have gone for

Others are trying to sell their houses in the area, with two having reduced the price, one by £10,000. No movement on any houses in the area as the school holidays have ended now and people are getting back to a normal routine.

With the weather being so good decided to get out into Derbyshire and get some photos near to Fox House, which has some interesting rock formations. With the kids back at school it wasn't as busy as last week when I was running a landscape photography course for someone who had come all the way up from Cardiff.  It was good to get some blue sky but also some more stormy clouds as rained threatened later on.

The nights are drawing in now and there has been some good sunsets in Sheffield, but nothing to rival the ones in Shetland, and if you add the superb scenery where else is better.

I am doing an Illustrated talk on `Shetland' next month down at St Augustine's Church, Brocco Bank, Sheffield 11, tickets are £3 which includes cheese and wine, available from Christine Markham on 0114 2360200 or 07429 269304. All the talks I do for the RSPB, Wildlife Trust, Natural History Groups, Probus and Women Institute, etc are always well received and very well attended, such is the interest in the isles. A bit far to come from Shetland but will interest others closer to Sheffield.
