    Thanks Chris, I was wondering when we would see this. You must have the entire population of Lerwick somewhere in that lot!

    Any particular reason for choosing B&W?

    The shots of the burning are really atmospheric.

    Ciao ... John

      Fantastic shots.

      The bearded viking with the baby is a stand out for me along with the oversized hip flask, brilliant

          Thanks John, mono because I like it and you can go a little grungy and incorporate the noise at ISO 1600
          and thanks Sponner and Neil

                Chris, what a great day you had, but it must have been tiring! Worth the effort, though, you got some great shots. I bet you're looking forward to next year already.

                  What a spectacular event and well captured. From someone who usually prefers colour I think it really works in B&W definitely a good choice.

                      I thoroughly enjoyed every single shot, fantastic work and you must have been knackered.
                      The black and white works fantastically, and the viewer really get's the feel of the scale and the workmanship and the effort that everyone has gone to.
                      It looks like a film set and some of those shot's are priceless.

                      You have done a fantastic job, and your efforts will be well remembered in years to come.

                      Stunning collection, and I am highly envious of them.
