Ben Fogle on Fair Isle, Shetland.

Ben Fogle and Camera Crew just rapped their shoot on Fair Isle for an upcoming program.
Keep a look out on this September!

I'll say no more now...
 I don't want to spoil the surprise.
It's going to be amazing though!

Reflections & Norwegians


Reflections of the Day.

Sunset 10:20 pm. June 15th, 2015 - Loch o' Easter Loder, Fair Isle, Shetland Islands, Scotland, UK. Just a small taste of joy. I was alone in the north of the isle and saw such great beauty that words are useless. No wind! just the sounds of the birds and sheep Amazingly, I was not filming at the time, just watching, as I saw the prefect green flash of the Sun as it slipped into the Atlantic.


If you have 2 minutes... please watch this.

Just before the Green Flash...


The Norwegians!


During the day I met some Norwegians who had sailed from Bergen, After they all had a beer and played my badly out of tune piano, the invited me down to their boat for drinks that night. After photograghing the sunset we drank in the Simmer Dim. What a good time we had...

I've got to get one of these hats!
I think I found another first for Britain! Ship assisted of course...
(this is birdwatching humour, please ignore otherwise.)
"really fried pork rinds.."

Fishcakes? don't mind if I do...
I need to cook with these things I could find some inspiration with these.


Aquavit - over the equator twice!

Me & Capt. Ronald Hellenes - Shol!

Good Morning

2 am. in the North Haven...
