Sunrise looking over Hays Dock in Lerwick. At the left of the frame is the Nil Desperandum, a boat originally built for the Ministry of Defence in 1947 and then bought in 1951 by the Wiseman family for fishing around Shetland. The boat has been berthed at Hays Dock for several years, providing a nostalgic sight, but is now due to be scrapped. Read more in the Shetland News story, ‘End of the line for Nil Desperandum’.
