The latest issue of the North South Images newsletter is now available.
I've been on Shetland in the spring numerous times and I know how changeable the weather there can be, ranging from thick mists to bright sunshine and from dead calm to storm-force winds. I was particularly pleased the puffins at Sumburgh Head were quite so cooperative, I hope their cooperation is rewarded by a fantastic breeding season.
Lofoten was a disappointment. I had gone hoping for at least a glimpse of bleak Arctic weather, and a glimpse of bleak Arctic weather was all I got.
For almost all the time, the sun shone and winds were light. It's not easy telling a story about the bleak north, when the pictures look more like the Caribbean (albeit without palm trees) than the Arctic.
The newsletter is available either on Slideshare or as a PDF file.
The previous newsletter (Feburary 2014) is also still available on Slideshare or as PDF
If you are interested in hearing more about people, places and wildlife in the far North or the far South, do get in touch. I'm always happy to talk (and enthuse) about cold places in front of an audience. firstname.lastname@example.org
