Broadford, Northern Lights

By Skinz  
The site has probably been inundated with shots of Thursday's Northern Lights. But here is one of my efforts.

Taken from a wonderful holiday cottage called Moeraki - shown on Google Maps. We were SOOOOO lucky to see the aurora this time. I follow a facebook page called Glendale Skye Aurora's. A great resource if you're up in the North West of Skye. Because of Andy (who runs the page) I was ready and waiting camera on tripod and high ISO set.

I watched it for quite some time, even having dinner in between viewings. It was so strong here on Skye that all the colours were visible, even the purple, which is normally very had to see with the naked eye.

I hope you like my effort.
