The new Windfarm

The Viking windfarm is now complete and will be fully operational from April next year

It is certainly not green with the amount of concrete poured into the hill side, the amount of peak removed and the distances the component have been brought and then transported
Micro fibre plastics are already coming off the blades and into the water course, not good to drink
Tourists are already saying its an eye sore and that they have destroyed one of the last wilderness in the UK

This is just the start with other wind farms approved in Yell, between Lerwick and Scalloway
Also a long chain of turbines are planned out at sea to the east which will affect bird migration and whales

Mid Summer in Shetland

Well it got up to 27 Degrees this summer which is excellent for Shetland

                                  St Ninian's always a popular spot for locals and visitors alike

             A good sunny day is usually followed by a foggy day. No good if you intend to travel by plane

Lerwick Tall Ship- an reflective view

There was plenty to photograph when the Tall Ships came to Lerwick
                      At Victoria Pier these newly painted Sea theme portraits caught the eye

                               With the sun out it was a good time to look for Ship reflections

                                 Love the colours, to the bottom right reflections of the flags
