|Sunset at the South Lighthouse.|
I have lived here for 10 years an still find joys here most every day.
and I can't stop taking pictures of them!
|South Lighthouse and the Aurora|
Note: the camera makes the Aurora much greener than in life.

|Atlantic Puffin - Fratercula arctica|
I have taken far too many photos of Puffins over the years...
but these are a little different...
Taken in the fog and using a flash...
Thus giving these photos a strange background and almost fake hyper-realism.
