Today On Fair Isle
|More sheeple Less People- Population 43|
|Posing for their glamor shot|
|Cloud 10- total immersion into the rock pool with the reflective background supplyig inspiration and ambience|
|After the rock pool I hiked up Malcom's head-a vertical climb of 750 feet or so...and then the majestic vista of the crofts, including ours on the left side|

Show rather than tell- So enamored with the technology and immediacy of youtube, instagram and FB. Ansel Adams, famous wilderness box photographer said, Paintings...welll only photographs can tell the truth... It is indisputable... You can embellish and BS and make things up, and I am all for one not letting the truth get into the way of telling a good story---But Beauty is truth and truth is beauty and when you capture the motion of the ocean or these clouds in a reflective pool, there is a kind of integrity that usurps words. The visual vocabulary that the cinematic wizards use to trompe the eye are unnecessary here: Point and shoot and let Mother Nature and Father Time do the rest.
