About this book

Lying far to the north of Scotland, the Shetland Islands form an extraordinary archipelago, unparalleled in Britain for their beauty. In the summer months, the sun barely dips below the horizon, and at midsummer there is the famous 'simmer dim'. Living in such close proximity to the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the sea's ever-changing moods leave a deep impression on those who live on or visit the islands, and many islanders are reliant upon the surrounding waters for their livelihoods. Shetland Islands includes fantastic seascapes and many of Shetland's ferries, ships and fishing boats appear alongside the celebrated Shetland ponies and historic monuments. This collection illustrates the varied and picturesque scenery around Shetland and reveals some of the many changes seen on the islands over the last fifty years.
