The Shetland Choral Society performed its spring concert in Mareel on Friday. The concert included 'Maria Theresa' Mass (Theresienmesse) by Joseph Haydn, Five Mystical Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Adiemus by Karl Jenkins (from the 'Songs of Sanctuary'). The photos were taken by Chris Brown.
The severe westerly gales have led to some spectacular waves crashing in to parts of Shetland. At Stenness the spray rose above the cliffs while in Fair Isle walls surrounding the South Lighthouse were damaged by the heavy seas. Forecasters predict the winds will ease overnight, although there will be some heavy rain and sleet showers.
This year's Scottish Youth Parliament election will see eight candidates compete for two seats to represent Shetland from June 2013 to June 2015. They are Andrew Bain (Lerwick), Samuel Barlow (Skeld), Catherine Hannah (Sandwick), Diana Inkster (Scalloway), James Leonard (Mossbank), Samuel McCormack (Sandwick), Kaylee Mouat (Scalloway) and Sammy-Jo Wallace (Dunrossness).
