Northmavine Up Helly Aa!

Well just as I left the house to go to see Brydon Anderson and his squad of Bezerkers at Northmavine Up Helly Aa it started snowing. And it snowed . And it got worse the nearer I got to Hillswick. I even considered turning back, but just before Urafirth the skies cleared to reveal a beautiful moon and stars and a frozen mirror like Voe.

I even had hopes of a show of the mirrie dancers, but the procession was show enough and the galley crashing through the frozen Voe to it's firey end was very atmospheric.

Here's a short video of the evening
