I managed to get a trip up to Shetland through one of the jobs I do, we were only there for one night but it was a nice change of scenery and the 28 hour round boat trip was an experience.
I'm pretty sure that even just the first leg of the journey, Glasgow - Aberdeen - Shetland, was the longest journey I've made and I didn't even leave Scotland!
Once we got to the ferry all that water just begged for some Sugimoto-esque seascapes and the waves the ferry was making were quite reminiscent of Hokusai I thought.
The departure from Aberdeen had all the tourists snapping away, oblivious to being photographed by me.
Shetland itself wasn't really anything like I expected it to be, not that I had really though about what it'd be like.
The skateboarders that were with us loved the smooth roads.
