In Pictures / Shetland winter glory – readers share their best shots (Part 3)

BY POPULAR demand – here is another selection of wonderful photos our readers have sent in over the last 24 hours. With a widespread thaw and the return to ‘normal’ January weather forecast for later on Friday night, we will not be running a part four of this gallery.

Many thanks to everyone who has sent in photos during the week. We hope you all enjoyed the selection of photos as much as we have.
