Sumburgh: silhouette framed by Fitful Head
Sumburgh: silhouette framed by Fitful Head
Looking back at the southern tip of mainland Shetland from the Aberdeen ferry. Sumburgh Head is nearer us, with the lighthouse on its top, while beyond it is Fitful Head. To think that I was a few yards from Sumburgh lighthouse earlier in the week and could barely see it for fog - see HU4007 : Sumburgh: lighthouse lost in the fog - here we are this evening with a clear view of it from many miles away!
