February's Photos - Snow, Lighthouse, and Malcolm's Head.

A snow day at the South Lighthouse. Feb. 3rd  
Still catching up on my blogging... here are a few photos from February.

South Lighthouse in Snow.

 Snow on the ground is really quite rare on Fair Isle... on average maybe once or twice a year. 

Taking advantage of the photographic opportunity, I went out much of the day, I didn't see another soul... and thank goodness look at the way I was dressed! LOL. I was warm though, and really enjoyed the snow.

I'n this wind swept landscape you can see the snow drifted behind all the rocks thrown onto the ground by the big seas and winds on the recent winter storms.

No snow plough needed, - The Auld Haa

Caught in a pelting hail storm as the light comes on.
South Lighthouse at Sunset.

The relationship between two things.

Just another Sunset... viewed from the Auld Haa.

Happy Valentine's Day.

The view from up top Malcolm's Head is always amazing and takes my breath away! 

Maybe the experience is heighten because I'm already breathing heavy just climbing up the steep hill side... but Wow! look at that view!     Feb. 24th

I waited...

(This is the photo I sent Discover Britain Magazine.)
I was asked to take a photo of myself for a upcoming article in which I gave interview for Discover Britain Magazine's April/May issue. I'm told it is just one of many photos in a 7 page story about Fair Isle where I gave a few comments over the phone. They asked for my full length portrait in the landscape... I climbed Malcolm's Head alone with my tripod, camera and it's 10 second timer. click! click! Fair Isle never fails to deliver it's natural beauty, I even caught a rainbow!
