Shetland Islands

Yes, I am in the Shetland Islands!

I am staying in the tiny hamlet you can see on the hillside (to the right) on the island of Yell, Shetland. The water is Whaal Firth, the Shetland equivalent of a fjord.

Midnight on the Summer Solstice, with Shetland pony

The same pony the next morning

And another Maalie for good measure!

Ooo lucky you! Bring me back a nice tup for my flock! I'd really like to go and see "my breed" of sheep in their home surroundings!

I once stayed in Fauske, just above the Arctic Circle in Norway, and it had the same kind of very low relief as this landscape. It certainly is a special kind of 'cold' beauty.

Immense skies and beautiful landscape! The white pony seems to be mesmerized by your camera. I never knew that Shetland Ponies could be white too. The Maalie in flight looks very majestic. All animals seems to pose for you! :-)
