The View from my Artist Studio - Video

The View from my Artist Studio - South Lighthouse, Fair Isle.
 Yesterday I made this video... spend a few minutes just enjoying the view.





          




My artist studio is in one of the buildings at the South Lighthouse on Fair Isle. The view is so amazing sometimes I just stare out the salt covered window or sit outside and enjoy the view and get nothing done. Yesterday the Atlantic Ocean was still crashing into Fair Isle from the Gale force 9 storm the night before... taking this video and being outside in the wind was a bit like sticking your head out the car window at 60 miles an hour. The sunlight breaking between the clouds made such beautiful light on the sea I had to get out of the studio and have a look even in the wild weather conditions. It wasn't the biggest or the most destructive storm... it was just yesterday and I thought it was beautiful, like today and every day is here too.

  5. Tommy, I'm watching Ben's show now. I'm loving your puffin designs. And extreme golf. A few years ago I did some extreme ironing on the deck of a yacht, mid Atlantic in a storm. Great memories!!
