Sheep Hill - The Gathering and Hill Caa










Photographing the Sheep Hill event twice a year for 10 years...
It is good that I can still find new images.
Like the ones above.

Enjoying being Home. Island Living

Autumn Colour

The World Traveler enjoying being home for the week.


The Light.
clouds opened, small patches of light moved across the landscape.

Me...

New wire bird made while out walking. Found some old fence wire on the ground.
No tools just used my hands and stuck in a post. Sort of looks like a Bee-eater.
A few wire birds can be seen around Fair Isle now. Good fun.

It's Time to Say Goodbye to the Puffins

I felt lucky to take this Photo today,
or even see a Puffin this late in August.


I have been in the States for the past 2 weeks, and thought the Puffins would be gone before I got back. But today huge numbers were flying around the northern cliffs below the South Lighthouse. Fabulous sight to remember until Spring. I am enjoying being back on Fair Isle and it is always nice to get out for a walk with my camera and my friend Graham.

Woohoo!



last taste of dirt for awhile....


A stunning landscape like this is hard to leave.

Goodbye Puffins! Be careful this Winter out at Sea...
