Shetland black

There can be nothing blacker than a January night in Shetland.

The deeper you go the blacker it gets. The near black of the road ahead. The just-behind black of the hill. The forever black of what’s above.

And if you’re ever truly out of the light, it’s the cold black you breathe that’s the darkest.

    People from Shetland may be amused by the title of this post as a Shetland black is a type of potato – best grown by the Budges of Bigton – that is in fact purple.
