It's Curtains For Inverness

By hwatt  
Of all the shots I took on this particular winter evening this one about a half hour before sunset was the most spectacular and featured the most dramatic transient light. A golden curtain descending from behind dense grey clouds looked more like an aurora one clearly visible to the naked eye and of course not green. I wanted to make the most of it and noticed that the display was remarkably static so I set up a rapid four shot panoramic with a long lens and was delighted to see the stitched result was more or less immaculate.

Taken from Alturlie Point I suspect. I have often seen this view but never photographed it. These rays are beautiful.
