Tiptoeing around the island, sticking to main roads where possible, I was pretty much able to continue working throughout. My only "Eek!" moment being one dark evening when, on a particularly snowy single track lane, I encountered a snowplough coming in the other direction.
Here's a selection of photos of the week, taken during work and play.
|After a day of being snowed and hailed upon whilst working in Orphir, it was lovely to experience a bit of blue sky just before sunset. At this point, I was still blithely unaware of my impending rendezvous with the snowplough.|
|A trip to Shetland and a wait for the boat home brought some photo opportunities. This is part of Lerwick harbour, with the small ferry from Bressay about to berth in Lerwick.|
|Across the other side of Shetland, a view of Scalloway Castle and some cloud reflections.|
|A panorama from home, looking northwestwards away from the sunrise. Clad only in dressing gown and slippers, it was an opportunity too good to miss.|
|A more 'gritty' photo than usual. One of the locals brings his work home with him.|
