Aurora over Scotland (50 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 over Stone Circle SO0213981jhp 
 Scotland Aurora Borealis Orion Pleiades Corona green zenith celestial wings from Tomnaverie Bronze Age stone circle site near Tarland on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire Scotland to the west of Aberdeen. Unusually this evening of ongoing activity started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003. This digital photo of a new surge in the display and strong development of a coronal zenith to the south the last of the digital photos was taken at 00.18.10hrsUT for 10secs and these cf139 digital photos were taken at 800ISO, I think I felt the power of the display justified a stop down from my usual 1600ISO setting hoping perhaps for better noise control. In hindsight this was to be one of the last major storms I witnessed on Deeside to date, 2018 culminating for me at Tomnaverie Recumbent Stone Circle near Tarland until after midnight, busy evening and in a sense the most spiritual experience I had photographing Aurora displays. I imagine those in the Bronze Age, without light pollution issues, would have often seen them as well. I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display and then went from there to Tomnaverie. The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera 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 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.

I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display and then went from there to Tomnaverie. The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera 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 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.

 Stone Circle Aurora Borealis Corona Orion flanker red ray Tarland Deeside winter Scotland Tomnaverie recumbent and flankers of the Bronze Age site near Tarland on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire Scotland to the west of Aberdeen. Unusually this evening of ongoing activity started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003. This digital photo was taken at 22.57.10hrsUT for 13secs and these cf139 digital photos were taken at 800ISO, I think I felt the power of the display justified a stop down from my usual 1600ISO setting hoping perhaps for better noise control but this early exposure is on the short side. In hindsight this was to be one of the last major storms I witnessed on Deeside to date, 2018 culminating for me at Tomnaverie Recumbent Stone Circle near Tarland until after midnight, busy evening and in a sense the most spiritual experience I had photographing Aurora displays. I imagine those in the Bronze Age, without light pollution issues, would have often seen them as well. I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display and then went from there to Tomnaverie. The evenings’ displays were taken with both digital and slide film and the first slide film photos started at around 17.40hrsUT. The magnetometer on site showed vigorous activity from 15.30hrs. This digital photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix Digital S2Pro camera 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 The Ley au71626jhp 
 Scottish Deeside Aurora display quiet dying colours Banchory winter display 1990 February taken on the Harestone Road by The Ley tree to the west of Banchory taken at a corner layby opposite the entrance to the Ley Farm which I tended to use more as it was more convenient and this tree at the entrance gave a very striking foreground. This photo was from one of three films taken on the 16th-20th of February of which this is the 20th February around 22.30hrs UT with this current phase dying down and is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. I have already added other photos taken during this same display but using Fuji RSP11 film stock so it was a busy night but activity waxes and wanes so there are bursts of active bright displays followed by very subdued periods with little activity, maybe some flashes or a general colour hue in the sky. I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RHP 35mm slide film rated at 400asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 800asa. They were exposed around the 15-20 seconds around the 20secs I later settled on as about the best combined with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more saturated. There was activity on the nights of the 16th, 17th, 19th and 20th and I found during the 90’s there were often displays several nights in a row as later photos will illustrate whereas after 2006 most displays seem only to last one night and often several months apart so a very different Solar Cycle.
These locations became my usual choices for most of the Aurora displays I photographed when living in Banchory throughout the early 90’s, as easily accessible from Banchory and with a clear light pollution free view to the North which meant that any clear night was spent watching the Northern skies for the tell-tale signs of a possible display, usually proceeded by an area of obvious brightness on the evening before the main display. It also gave easy access to Crathes Castle which featured a couple of times as different foreground to Aurora displays.

This photo was from one of three films taken on the 16th-20th of February of which this is the 20th February finishing around 23.20hrs UT, the last frame taken on this film and the display now lacking any activity or discernible rays and is one of the many displays in early 1990, a decade which proved to be an extremely productive one for Aurora displays and photography. There was activity on the nights of the 16th, 17th, 19th and 20th and I found during the 90’s there were often displays several nights in a row as later photos will illustrate whereas after 2006 most displays seem only to last one night and often several months apart so a very different Solar Cycle I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated as and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen at 1600asa, and exposed around the 15-20 seconds around the 20 I later settled on. Several of the photos show a subdued quality akin to the human eye and bare probably a more accurate representation of what is seen in reality.

These locations became my usual choices for most of the Aurora displays I photographed when living in Banchory throughout the early 90’s, as easily accessible from Banchory and with a clear light pollution free view to the North which meant that any clear night was spent watching the Northern skies for the tell-tale signs of a possible display, usually proceeded by an area of obvious brightness on the evening before the main display.

Aurora Cairn O Mount au61706jhp 
 Scotland Aurora Borealis quiet display Cairn O’Mount arc winter 11th December 1989 taken on the north face of the Cairn O’Mount and which looks across to Clachnaben, the notable hill with a tor rocky outcrop which makes it visible from much of Deeside when looking south. This photo is one of the early ones, I think the third display, I took of an Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated by Fuji at 1600asa and possibly exposed shorter than the 20 seconds I later settled on and hence the darker and slightly stronger grain effect but actually far more accurate in terms of the human eye perception of a display. It was active around 22.30 to about 23.45 GMT/UT. The project to photograph an Aurora came after a missed opportunity earlier in the year in March with what became known as the Big Aurora, a full Corona over Deeside. I had got the idea of trying to photograph a display following on from my success in 1986 of capturing Halley’s Comet thanks to the support of the Astronomy Ian Shepherd at the Edinburgh Observatory. I had heard about the Big Aurora but had missed the display buried away in my darkroom processing B&W photos for the local newspaper. Ian suggested I contact John MacNicol, President of the Aberdeen Astronomy Society and he eventually tipped me off about my first display of the 23 September and probably about the one captured here. The large dark post is one of the snow poles that line the side of the Cairn road.

 Aurora Borealis Northern Lights faint quiet period winter Scotland green red rays Deeside taken on the 27th February, 2014 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen is the first display I have seen this year and the best for several years since the end of the previous Solar Cycle in 2006 although initial forecasts did not suggest a display of this strength was likely over the UK from a glancing CME. It was in fact observed and photographed as far south as Essex in England.

It’s most active phase of the evening’s display was over around 20.30 including a fairly rare occurrence of a folded arc, more common in the most northern regions. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 and ISO settings of 3200 allowing for much shorter exposure times e.g. circa 15 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events.

The first activity photographed of this display was about 19.50, looking west of North to the west of Torphins, this one was around 22.05 and was after the arc has disappeared and the ray activity is in a general dying off as the overall strength of the display subdues. This phase sees more individual rays, green towards the northern centre with red rays to the western edges.

Lake Qarum al-Fayyum eg947034jhp 
 Egypt el-Fayoum Lake Qarun Moeris peaceful quiet lakeshore restaurant was a peaceful coffee stop during hectic visit to The Fayyum [Crocodilopolis Nome] province of Egypt south of Cairo which included visits to Meydum and Hawara pyramids, the waterwheels of Madinat al-Fayyum Town, Lake Qarun and then returning to Cairo via Karanis. Many years later I returned to the Lake and stayed at the historic Auberge Helnan Hotel on its shores before a journey across the desert to Soknopaiou Nesos [Dimyah-al-Siba] and Qasr al-Saghah Temple. The Lake has a long history from Neolithic times but major development started under Amenemhat 1 in the 12th Dynasty with water management and drainage schemes. Very productive area for various crops, wildfowl and fish with increase development during the Ptolemaic and Roman times as it is still to modern days.

Karnak Temple Sandstorm EG0214013jhp 
 Karnak Egypt Chapel gate sandstorm dramatic light hypostyle palms hazy which is located inside the central enclosure wall of the Karnak complex at Luxor on the East Bank of the River Nile. It is a relatively ruined small temple lying near the exterior north wall of the hypostyle hall and the path to the Temple of Ptah and gate to Montu Temple in the North Enclosure. The area is a cluster of ruins and blocks in storage and is very seldom frequented so always quiet in the crowded times. On the day I visited we had very poor light conditions caused by an encroaching sand storm and it was very overcast so apologies for the quality of these few images; one day I hope to return and get them in better light.

The chapel is dedicated to the Princess Ankhnesneferibre, daughter of Psamtik 11 and his Queen Takhut and she became successor to Nitocris the Divine Adoratice and later God’s Wife of Amun, High Priest and effectively ruled Thebes for nearly 60 years during the later Saite Period of Rule over Egypt; started in Dynasty 24 and centred on City of Sais in Northern delta region. Turbulent times however and she was in effect the last to hold this position for around the time of her death Psamtik 111, after a very short reign, was defeated by the Persian’s and the 26th Dynasty came to an end in 525BC.

 Egypt Luxor Hotel River Nile View balloons dawn West Bank Hatshepsut looking over the quiet River Nile on a sunny September dawn from one of the riverside balconies of this long standing central Luxor Hotel on the city waterfront. This was my first visit to Luxor and I was lucky to get changed to a room in the north wing which was considerably quieter than one in the centre of the hotel above the swimming pool, various restaurants and a dance floor. It also offered great views to the West Bank and in this case two hot air balloons starting their trips over the West Bank. In 1994 the Hotel was the Etap but is now the Mercure and has a great location on the promenade with easy access by foot to the Luxor Museum, to public ferry points for crossing the Nile and to nearby shops or just enjoyed a leisurely walk along the tree lined waterfront by the berthed cruiseboats and feluccas.

 Luxor Temple Court Egypt Amenhotep peristyle columns broken carved papyrus-bud capitals, a glorious addition to the temple complex and the finest workmanship from the 18th Dynasty. Once it would have been covered and is still in generally good condition although some recent preservation work has been done because of the increasing water table. This photo was taken towards the end of the afternoon so hence it tends to be against the sun which sets over the West Bank. It can be a quiet time to visit the temple because most the main package tours have finished but also there is a lovely quality to the evening light casting a gentle golden glow over the limestone.

Egypt > River Nile Cruise & Sites (9 files)

Photographs in this gallery show daily life along the River Nile mainly from the cruises I have undertaken over the past 10 years or so. Sites that border the Nile are included although the major temples visted have their own dedicated sites such as Edfu and Kom Ombo. One of the enjoyments of the Nile cruise is the tranquility of watching 'life go by' usually characterised by the friendliness of those you pass whether boatmen or farm workers as well as seeing wild birds close at hand. The other aspect is the service on the cruiseboats from friendly crews and the chance to relax after hectic and often crowded temple visits.
Atlas at Edfu EG203834jhp 
 Egypt River Nile Edfu berth Atlas cruiseboat older boat cruise which offer the restful times on the Nile after intense guided tours the various temples such as Edfu in this case. One enjoyable tradition is the afternoon tea and cakes provided free of charge as part of the Nile Cruise experience with its origins from Victorian days. After a busy day maybe visiting temples or a hot day relaxing on deck watching the busy daily rural life along the River Nile, the evening sunset can be a quiet peaceful time in an otherwise hectic itinerary. I was only on the Atlas once and although small and compact with a real sense of age it was an enjoyable cruise and felt more intimate than I imagine those huge glass and marble multi storey cruiseboats are, Sadly these days I hear that many are rusting away at anchor because of the dire downturn in the tourist numbers as happened after the 1997 terrorist attacks in Luxor.

Construction is with small bricks of fine white limestone giving this huge building a very delicate structure and aesthetic appearance. Still one of the highlights of any visit to Egypt, despite the wealth of fantastic places to see, and for me best enjoyed towards the evening when the site is often quiet and the face of the pyramid from the colonnade entrance is bathed in soft golden light.

Well signed from the road via the village, with a Historic Scotland carpark and easy access. One of the largest sites in the North East with evidence suggesting early use over a few centuries but possibly stopped around the Beaker period c 2000BC. There is evidence, along with much bone and skull fragments, of extensive cremation use and a possible wooden mortuary structure from the finds of postholes in the middle of the central area. One of the monoliths has five cup-marks in a line on its inner face.

 South Leylodge Recumbent Flankers Stone Circle Kintore Aberdeenshire bronze Age historic ruined monument in a field [NJ766132] to the North of the dead end slip road signed Lauchintilly off the B977 Dunecht to Kintore Road. Only the flankers and recumbent appear to be left although there are several single standing stones in nearby fields, possibly monoliths from the original RSC but now useful scratching posts for cattle. Also called the South Ley Lodge RSC per Aubrey Burl’s book ref No: 98 P353 for his details regarding the site. Ian Shepherd in Exploring Scotland’s Heritage: Grampian suggests on page 145 that it might be an example of a RSC that was only that-the flankers and the recumbent and the rest of the circle was never completed. The point was also made that these stones were the first built as the largest and most important although this idea is somewhat contradicted in later studies made at Tomnaverie where these stones are thought to have been added as the final stage of closing out the monument.

 Cullerlie Stone Circle Monolith Aberdeenshire Deeside Scootish Historic Site Photo lies west of Aberdeen near Garlogie off the Aberdeen Tarland Road and is Historic Scotland signposted. It is situated on the edge of Leuchar Moss. Excavated in 1934, evidence was found of cremation in a series of kerb cairns and from wood charcoal analysis it is suggested this occurred at different times in history. Dated from 2nd Millennium BC, it is argued it was a later development of the more common Recumbent Stone Circles.
