Fair Isle 2 - Rocks and Waves and Skies

Fair Isle 1

I made it.  Unbelievable.  I don't believe it, any way, sitting here watching the waves crash over rocks taller than houses.  I was on that water, 48 hours ago, in a tiny, tiny boat.  Thank goodness for seatbelts, is all I can say - and seasickness pills!  

I tried to take some photos of the shore, but the wind buffets you about so much I couldn't get anything in focus, so instead, here are some (I think) Maritime Sunburst Lichen, growing in a comparatively calm dip in the land.




Somehow I think I'll have no shortage of big waves to photograph in the weeks ahead ...
