I drove over to the other side of the island to drop off some horserugs for mending and afterwards I thought I would take the scenic route home and enjoy the autumnal colours.
The sea was very blue but the wind was described today as a “strong breeze”.
It is a north-westerly so there is a bit of a nip in the air.
All of a sudden Summer feels like a brief interlude.
The colours in the landscape have changed as quickly as the weather. One day it was Summer, the next Autumn. Too quick.
I drove past some Shetland ponies grazing in a hill park. I quickly stopped the car and took a few pics.
They looked very at home in their natural environment.
Driving southward along the Lang Kames to “Halfway House”, there was a viscious squall coming across the hills.
And yes, we have trees in Shetland. Who knew?
This is a small copse in Kergord. I found this article on t’net, which made interesting reading. It is about the tree management here.
I enjoyed driving around, listening to an audio book as I go, and seeing a different part of Shetland. It was a nice peaceful way to spend an afternoon.
