The last two nights have provided residents of the north of Scotland with the most amazing Auroras. I missed those on Sunday but spent a couple of hours at the Plock Viewpoint in Kyle of Lochalsh last night and my patience was rewarded with the best aurora display I have ever seen. The above shot is probably my favourite but, as you will see from the collection below, I had a fair few to choose from.
A little earlier in the evening I had the time to try out a few shots of the night sky, as the pale glow from the receding sun disappeared in the west. The shot below was an attempt to capture the faint Milky Way, but the moon was too bright and it was too early in the night. I still like the picture though.
I am an amateur photographer who is also a Chartered Geographer with his own part-time consultancy business and I work as an estate manager for a national conservation charity in Scotland. I am based in Lochalsh, Wester Ross, Scotland, just next to the Isle of Skye.
