Life Inside & Out
The Glasshouse at Tingwall, Shetland, has been out of use for some years. Now the plans to revive it have been boosted by a lottery grant of £10k. While there is anticipation about the growth of plant life and employment inside the building, there was a vivid sequence captured of the Northern Lights (or Mirrie Dancers, as they are called locally) outside the structure. Watch the timelapse pictures here and enjoy the show promoted by Shetland Arts. Transition Shetland, aware of climate change and environmental issues, is one of the motivating forces behind the glasshouse project.
