From the Lerwick Series -

Lerwick, Shetland, Scotland, UK.
Lodberry, detail.

Meandering along the waterbreak and one finds “lodberries”, old fish merchant warehouses built directly on water – a bit like Venice on the Adriatic coast…
Hence the nickname,
Venise du nord/ Venice of the North.

I like it from the sea side.

    Fabulous shot, Nat. So full of atmosphere and textures. I can nearly smell the fish and the brine. x
