Starry Night in Spiggie

By MHenderson
This is a photo taken from the little beach of Spiggie in Shetland's South Mainland. A beautiful, calm, August Monday morning about 1am. The beach faces NW out into the Atlantic Ocean, the remote island of Foula can just be seen, distant on the horizon. So calm the stars are reflected in the water, not a breath of wind. A crofter returning home in his car, conveniently provided a brief flash of light over the cliffs to provide some additional foreground light. The camera picks up a very faint green and pink of aurora low on the horizon with the 30 second exposure.

presented in a most realistic manner.. low amount of light enhancing loneliness and isolation which further enhances its charm as a private and romantic place..
