We've had snow on and off today. This evening has cleared up with a bright skies and deadly paths and roads of ice. Just to check they really were as bad as they seemed and it was a cold as it felt, I went for a drive up the Scord and then walked up the Hill of Easterhoull, in the snow, in the dark, just to get a few pictures of Scalloway on this lovely night. Some times I worry about myself!
I'm not sure they were worth the effort but the crisp air was nice.
Orion over the house; the inspiration for going out after I'd put the hens to bed...
.... and the moon was pretty cool too
The view from the hilltop was great, but hard to capture on camera (attempts at panoramas were awful) with the big skies and expanses of lit water. If you click to enlarge you'll see Scaloway Castle, oddly unlit, in the middle of it all. I'll have to go back in the day time as there'll be some great views out over Burra and beyond.
Brrrr.... one well nithered person here, looking forward to a warm bed!
