Despite the temptations of the shore, wind, rain and plankton, there are some underwater images here:

... and the story here:

Very nice!

Has to be some of the most magnificent landscape in the world, particularly, and on occasion, when the sun shines.

I have to agree with you there Jeff. Stunning scenery, better when it isnt raining.

 

Great collection of both topside and underwater images Tim.

What's with the Air Sea Rescue? I was expecting it to be mentioned in the 'story' link - but nothing......

Valkyrie lets the winchman practice: he gets a cup of tea, and the decks are blown clear of dust and debris...

what lighting method/equipment were you using for the nudi, with this label

Shetland 2011 21 1313 Hascosay Polycera quadrilineata or faroensis nudibranch

 

I find the lighting of that one to be wonderful.

Nikon 105 micro, AF and VR, two Inon S2000 strobes close to the port and aimed at about 45-degrees inwards, & slightly downwards, with the left-hand strobe about 2-stops brighter than the right and aimed just in front of the nudibranch. 1/125, f22, ISO 200. So, basically, nothing fancy and some luck in getting the light in the right direction; I think it's the way that the slug's translucent body bounces the light around that helps.

Polycera nudibranch from the island of Hascosay

 

The odd thing about this slug is that it looks a little like Polycera quadrilineata and a little like Polycera faroensis: I can't work it out.

Help wanted!

 

Is the image above just a form of P quadrilineata with too many oral processes?
