Silhouetted torches

The Guizer Jarl is silhouetted as members of his Viking Squad walk around a long boat with burning torches during the annual Up Helly Aa Festival, Lerwick, Shetland Islands. One of Britain's most remote communities came together Tuesday to celebrate its Viking heritage with a spectacular festival of fire and fancy dress. (AFP/Carl de Souza)
