Photographer's Note

This shot was taken in the early evening/late afternoon when the light has softenned and the shadwos become more interesting.

In the distance is the Shetland village of Hamnavoe on the island of Burra. A beautiful little west-facing hamlet with loads of photo opportunities for me to keep returning. For example there's a sheltered bay, a lighthouse and a jetty - all great foreground stuff!

There's nothing between this village and New York over 'the pond'.

Some would argue that Hamnavoe really comes to its best when it is properly dark - the folk who live here know how to enjoy themselves, a trait of most islanders I think :-)

No polarizer on this show, but I did use a grad tohold back that sky.

Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend
