Mountains in the mist

Took a trip to town today. In Shetland such a trip involved 20 minutes driving on beautifully smooth roads, since I have to admit that Shetland has about the best maintained roads in the UK.
But from Vestnes, a trip to town takes 20 minutes on the Hurtigbåt (fast boat). The journey is about 11km at 27 knots, on a sea which is smoother than any Shetland road.
Today there was mist hanging around the fjord which made the mountains appear mystical, and different in perspective, so it was like seeing it all for the first time.
As a Shetlander I don't think I'll ever lose my fascination for mountains.

I took a video of the crossing, and once I figure out how to add a video here, you'll see it.
