Hubie Aurora

By MHenderson
On my return to the old homestead in Hubie, after a lively night of fiddle tunes in the Fetlar Hall, it was a very dark sky and for once no wind, still and frosty. I went into the house and got the camera and tripod, aiming to try and get some nice shots of the stars. I couldn't believe it when the clouds to the north cleared and a green glow of an aurora appeared, there was a hint of purple along the edges of it visible with the naked eye, I hadn't seen this purple colour in the Aurora before. After being outside for about an hour the stars were spectacular. With a long exposure of 60 secs the camera fairly picked out the purple hew in the sky, setting off the Hubie hoose. This photo was taken about half past midnight on 14 April 2012, Fetlar, Shetland.

I really like the homey feel of the picture and that you were able to capture the light over the horizont as well as have all the stars showing. Nice one. Smile
