Hope you all had a great weekend, sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve sort of lost the enthusiasm of late, I still try and get out and shoot but it’s not things you want to see, the whole idea of starting this blog was to show you a side of the offshore industry you would not normally get to see, and that was always the positive side.
So now you are stuck with some of my travel shots instead, this was a cold, wet, miserable evening in Lerwick, (the capital and main port of the Shetland Islands), but even so, still a really nice place to visit.
A nice walk around the small fishing harbour, until I was drenched through.
Next posts will be from the Caribbean, yeah I know, but someone has to do it.
Yes I know it’s supposed to be iPhone Friday but i’m getting into this HDR stuff.
Stretch commented yesterday on the work that goes into making these boats so thought I better show this one, probably made for the museum behind me (in the photo not now). gives you an idea of the skill these people must have and the amount of work that goes into building such a craft.
This one is a closer look at the stone hut on the pier, again because of the rain and wind I didn’t hang around to read any signs so not sure exactly what its for, at a guess I would say a place to work on nets or small machinery as the doors are not big enough to fit a boat in. Nice looking building though.
This is my Silly Sunday shot, silly because I had my camera setting all wrong, I hadn’t checked the setting, the IOS was set at 6400, don’t ask me why! I don’t know, so instead of the bin I tried running it through Snapseed and well, not bad. The moral of the story is don’t bin anything. And yes the birds are real.
