This is part of an ongoing set at this location.
This was our view from the window of the Sunburgh Hotel on the Shetland Isles in Northern Scotland on the 60N parallel….And this sunset was taken on our very first night just hours after we arrived.
This was the ruins of the Great Hall of the Lairds House and was all that stands beside the unearthed Viking Village at Jarlshof..

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    Wow Larry, nice job of getting so much foreground detail in a heavily backlit scene.
    Excellent sunset work!!

  • Every now and then I get my brain into gear and do things manually..
    This was one of those times… Also the HDR makes a big difference as well.
