Aurora over Scotland (81 files)

Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights displays photographed taken over Aberdeeshire in Scotland since 1989 covering some 350 events with arc, rays, coronas with a wide rnage of shapes and colours
Aurora Corona Forming aucf13119jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scottish strong Corona zenith shape green red rays Deeside Aberdeenshire photos taken on the evening of the 30th at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking from the east to the south. This digital photo was taken at 23.25.32hrsUT for 13secs, showing green and red oxygen rays forming the classic corona zenith or crown above the cottage roof looking southwards the colour chnage indicating the strength of the display increasing. This was a short exposure 13 as against 20 secs and very faint CCd structure lines are visible and indication of an under exposure. This was the last of the digital photos taken. The cf131 digital sequence, starting at 22.58.22, shows the continuing activity following on from the very active night of the 29th/30th with another Corona to be viewed through until the last frame at 23.25.32 which was frustrated by complete cloud cover and rain. Photos were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film started at around 21.50hrsUT on the evening of the 30th when the extensive cloud cover cleared. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 21.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were some of my first digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.

Aurora Cloudy Display aucf12838jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scotland Corona zenith green red rays Orion South stars cottage roof Deeside Aberdeenshire photos taken on the morning of the 30th at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking from the east to the south. This last photo was taken at 02.28.39hrsUT for 23secs, showing strong red oxygen background light looking southwards marked by Orion in its winter position to the north and a very rare position in which to see Aurora displays at the end of this digital sequence and when cloud cover stopped further viewing. The cf128 digital sequence, starting at 01.39.28 of the continuing activity continued well into the morning of the 30th October when clouds cleared again, perseverance pays, allowing a third major Corona to be viewed through until the last frame at 02.28.39 which in the course of displays I have seen was unusual to continue as long as this. Photos were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film started at around 20.15hrs UT on the evening of the 29th towards the west visible through gaps in the extensive cloud cover and further slide film preceded this digital sequence from 00.56 to 01.04 hrs UT on scanned slides AB036series. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish green red rays North Plough clouds increasing Deeside Aberdeenshire photos taken on the morning of the 30th at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking from the east to the south. This photo was taken at 02.27.34hrsUT for 24secs, showing green and red oxygen rays looking North with increasing cloud cover starting to blank out the Aurora display. The Plough is above gap between the two tree tops. The cf128 digital sequence, starting at 01.39.28 of the continuing activity continued well into the morning of the 30th October when clouds cleared again, perseverance pays, allowing a third major Corona to be viewed through until the last frame at 02.28.39 which in the course of displays I have seen was unusual to continue as long as this. Photos were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film started at around 20.15hrs UT on the evening of the 29th towards the west visible through gaps in the extensive cloud cover and further slide film preceded this digital sequence from 00.56 to 01.04 hrs UT on scanned slides AB036series.

This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were some of my first digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.

The cf126, the first digital set taken, was 13 frames over 13mins, illustrating how busy you can be when a full display is ongoing, photographing from east to west and directly overhead. The display continued throughout the evening into the morning of the 30th October. Photos were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film started at around 20.15hrs UT towards the west visible through gaps in the extensive cloud cover. This photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 16mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were some of my earliest digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and the noise factor was superior to the grain created pushing 400asa slide film to 1600asa.

 Aurora Borealis Scotland autumn October clouds red ray northwards Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland two photos taken on the evening of the 15th October, 2003 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking to north. This photo was taken at 23.29.10hrsUT for 18secs showing strong red ray activity from a very low grade arc and the constellation Ursa Major, The Plough or Big Dipper is just hidden behind the increasing cloud cover. I took 4 frames over 30 mins, so cloud cover stopped me photographing more of the display using my Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 16mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were some of my earliest digital recordings taken during 2003 when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and for this display, sandwiched between 27th July and 28th October, I took no slide film. At 1600 ISO the noise factor was not a problem and the general look of the images were better than the corresponding slide film with 400asa stock pushed two stops to give an equivalent sensitivity level of 1600asa. There was a full moon that night sitting off to the east of this north facing display.

Scottish Summer Aurora aucf9547jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scotland East summer Torphins moon purple nitrogen ray Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland taken on the morning of the 22nd August, 2003 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking to north. This photo was taken at 00.24.41hrsUT for 17secs showing single nitrogen ray activity with the yellow green oxygen gas in a breaking arc loking eastwards over the lights of Torphins with a full moon to the right of the frame. I took 20 frames between 00.19hrs and 01.13.32hrsUT, using my Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera, at maximum ISO of 1600 using a Sigma 16mm f2.8 fisheye lens, giving a fairly undistorted wide angle image, wide open aperture with most exposures manually near the 20 seconds mark which experience suggested was around the best exposure for the low light Aurora displays. These were some of my earliest digital recordings when the quality of digital cameras had at last matched 35mm slide film standards and for this display, sandwiched between 27th July and 28th October, I took no slide film.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish Plough summer yellow green arc North faint rays Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland taken on the morning of the 22nd August, 2003 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen looking to north. This photo was taken at 00.19.41hrsUT for 17secs showing faint multiple ray activity with the yellow green oxygen gas in a breaking arc and the constellation Ursa Major, The Plough or Big Dipper.

Crathes Rainbow bnm6581jhp 
 Double rainbow colourful Deeside spring Scottish River Dee Crathes bridge weather evening sunlight and although not perhaps calendar material are none the less great photography subjects. Captured by accident returning from dropping friends off at Aberdeen Train Station and spotted the bright sunshine and showers, always a goof oemn for rainbows. The shapes, size and often awesome sense of power of clouds and often couple with rain storms and rainbows make them a subject I enjoy photographing and are a truer reflection perhaps of the great mix of weather and light we have in the North East of Scotland. One big headache is the rain that creates them so lenses have to be kept dry or covered as much as possible and it also appears in the images are short lines as it falls catching the sunlight although in these photos not a problem.
