Up Helly Aa 2008

It's Up Helly Aa day and I'm just back from the morning procession. Fortunately it's a fine day! I've been away at uni for the last six Up-Helly-Aas, so I'm looking forward to seeing the torchlit procession and burning tonight.

If you don't know what Up Helly Aa (arguably Europe's largest fire festival) is all about, check it out on Shetland.org
