The Shetland Flyer

Trebister Loch lies up the hill just to the south of Lerwick on Trebister Ness, a headland between the Voe of Sound and Gulberwick. It's a popular fishing loch in the Summer with easy access from the road, but here we find it totally frozen over and covered with a layer of snow. A big shower cloud has just passed over, forming a dramatic sky in the low winter sun. Just a bit of fun, enjoy!

    A couple of new videos this weekend, South Nesting on the east side of Shetland and Whiteness and Weisdale, the gateway to the Westside. Beautiful weather produced some stunning shots!

    Lerwick From The Air has proved to be my most popular video yet! Filmed at three locations in Lerwick the shots of the Clickimin Broch have attracted a lot of interest. Great fun filming it, and the incredible weather made for some great shots.

    A few days of hot weather in Shetland (when I was south - typical!) has led to a spell of low cloud and fog over the islands. Not to be deterred I headed west hoping for some clearer skies only to find a 400' cloud base! The result is my latest video, "Under Low Cloud at Vementry" which is quite atmospheric in the absence of the sun!
