A fine fiery night in Northmavine

A still and very cold but beautiful night for Da Nort Up Helly Aa, the galley burnt on the water (once the ice had been broken) and a great time had by all. The picture shows The Two Sandy Nelsons and The Two (heavily swaddled) David Nelsons (one technically a Seoras), Elaine and Caroline Nelson. Much entertaining satire at the hall later, best left undescribed, fabulous mince and tatties, and some very nice Clynelish 14-year-old, which is perfectly suited for outdoors flask-related consumption.

It all looks like great fun to me but on a technical note, I would suggest that the "circles of confusion" on the portrait photo might lead me to conclude that some of the fine whisky had been consumed prior to the
picture being taken thus leading to condensation forming on the lens.
