Had a great night last night with the camera down at the Ireland Beach.  I had to abandon the car washing in order to have sufficient time to capture the sunset which I knew was shaping up to be a real humdinger with Foula clearly visible on the horizon.  Could this be the start of the summer?

Really enjoying the combination of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II with the Canon 17-40mm F4 L lens – great sharpness and the bigger LCD screen is much easier to use than the smaller one on my old Canon EOS 20D.

Thursday was election day and I would like to congratulate Alistair Carmichael on retaining his Shetland and Orkney seat by a clear majority up 10.5% on the previous campaign.  It was, however, a disappointing night for the Liberal Democrats overall as they failed to gain ground on their rivals despite a few bouyant performances by Nick Clegg during the live TV debates.

Have another image from last night’s sunset which I’ll post soon.

    That would have to be one of the best sunsets I’ve seen. Awesome shot Ben!
