    Thank you very much alex_b, yeah for sure Shetland is a place of absolute beauty, breathtaking scenery, everywhere u go, i'd recommend it to anyone who would be looking for a photography holiday, best time is in June, when we have almost 100% daylight!! with beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

    The only time the 'lights' hit Maine in my short lifetime was a few months ago. Guess who decided I could 'sleep through them'? Stupid parents.

    Nice series.

    Amazing photos! The sea and landscapes are my favorites. There is one that looks like a little house is going to get blown away!

    What use is a Shetland pony? There isn't a lot a of pickins on it and it won't pull much.

    If you look into the history of the shetland pony you will find that we export them to France for human consumption and they can pull one helluva weight too for their size, their one hardy pony, they'd need to be to stay out in the bleak cold gale force winds we have here in winter!!!

    Of course I'm just poking your ribs here, but if you want to wind up an Icelander do this when an Icelandic horse is galloping by; point at it and say "Look at the little pony". For some mad reason they'll get defensive and tell you off that it's a horse. Cracks me up every time. :)
