Getting sick of the Aurora Borealis yet?

I'm not!

I went out last night, to a little village called Jubidee, to try some star trail photos as it was the last night I would be able to try it up here. I was looking up at Ursa Major and suddenly a wierd line appeared through it. It took quite a few seconds before the green shone through and then there it was - the Northern Lights. AGAIN!!!!

I was so chuffed as they were showing for quite a while, which is just as well as I hadn't even got my camera out of the bag when they started.

I think I got a much better image than the last time I spotted them.

Who could get tired of the northern lights? Good to see you're still shooting & experimenting. What are you doing in Orkney?

Hi Keith. It's nice to hear from you. I didn't know you were a reader of my blog!!
I was working at the Skara Brae Heritage Site this summer and will, sadly, be heading home on Tuesday.
I saw you were holding the Environmental course at Stills. I hope it will be run again as I was thinking of signing up for it.
I hope you, Allan and Neil are all well.
