Aurora over Scotland (111 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.

 Aurora Borealis Scottish shed roof northwards March green double arc Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the evening of 6th March, 2016 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen, starting around 8.00pm, this one at 20.46.53UT, and is the first display since the one that spanned the New Year. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 24mm/28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 aperture and ISO settings of 3200 which allows for shorter exposures circa 12 sec average times giving more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were sometimes not ideal because of passing snow flurries but the second burst of activity around 9.30 until nearly 10.00pm was in good clear conditions although cold. It had not been telegraphed from the Spaceweather site which was indicating possible displays caused by the solar wind but likely to occur much further North. During the early stage of the arc developing and going active there were several rays above the viewer but not powerful enough to develop into a half Corona.

Deeside Aurora 2016 vbn1777jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scotland last 2016 photo faint display Deeside Aberdeenshire taken on the 1st January, 2016 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen caused over the UK from a glancing CME and a timely end to the year gift given that the previous three displays I missed because of cloud cover.

This photo was taken at 01.06UT 2016 with a secondary active phase of the evenings display which started some 1 hour earlier beginning to die down and this photo gives a pretty accurate illustration of how the display would look to the eye with perhaps less of a green hue than this slightly enhanced photo shows.

Aurora Deeside jkl8369jhp 
 Aurora Borealis February last photo Scottish faint low grade display green rays Aberdeenshire 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 24mm 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 with this last phase of photography, this particular image was taken at 22.32 with my efforts overall completing then when activity, although continuing until after midnight, was very faint and photography would have little value. During the earlier part of this phase there were pulsing sheets of light thrown upwards from the horizon into the higher atmosphere but as so low level that they cannot be photographed. This went on during low level activity with faint rays with an occasional stronger but briefly lasting single ray.

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 21.53 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.

 Aurora Borealis Crooktree cottage meteor winter Scottish green 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.

This photo and those up to the cottage roof view where taken between 20.15 and 20.35 and give an idea of how active and varied a display can be in such a short time. It was also the most active phase of the evenings display 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 24mm Nikkor f2.8 lens at f4 and ISO settings of 6400 allowing for much shorter exposure times e.g. circa 10 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.

 Aurora Borealis winter Scottish green red rays folded arc aircraft lights 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.

This photo and those up to the cottage roof view where taken between 20.15 and 20.35 and give an idea of how active and varied a display can be in such a short time. It was also the most active phase of the evenings display including a fairly rare occurrence of a folded arc, more common in the most northern regions.

 Dendera temple Egypt Tiberian Hall ceiling carvings painted Hathor damaged faces in this beautiful mainly Ptolemaic and Roman structure although the site extends back into the earliest periods of Egyptian existence and it is also famous as having one of the only representations the famous Queen Cleopatra V11 with her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion.This photo is of the elaborate ceiling and columns of the Tiberian columned hall which first faces the visitor entering the temple proper. The tops of the columns have Hathor faces vandalised in antiquity, probably when it was filled with sand and seen as pagan for the earlier Christians who often used these temples as churches and were thus easily able to obliterate the faces. What is very wonderful even today is the elaborate nature of the decorations not only on the ceilings but also covering in exquisite details all the sides of the columns and the surrounding walls. The temple can be reached by road from Luxor and is also the destination for a popular day cruise on the River Nile from Luxor via Qena.

Originally erected by Seti 1 and was completed by his son Ramses 11 and although today greatly lacking in perfection is still overwhelming in its scale. This photo is taken from the outside of the hall on the southern side of the Temple where most of the inscriptions are related to Ramses 11 and his various military campaigns in Syria, Palestine and Kadesh against the Hittites and the hall is just visible above the wall. This section is between the gate and the wall of the First Court behind the seventh Pylon.

The small Temple to Hathor has some beautiful decorations, is a peaceful and spiritual place as usually free of crowds, is pleasingly compact compared to the overwhelming temples nearby and has managed to survive almost intact from Ptolemaic times. Some of the interior photos are border line for quality as the light was poor and tripods, and of course, flash are not allowed.

Egypt > River Nile Cruise & Sites (1 file)

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.
Esna Temple EG02515jhp 
 Egypt Esna Temple Roman hypostyle columns hieroglyphs colours floral capitals roof details is a small gem deep in a hollow under the modern town building line. The hypostyle hall is all that remains of one of the latest temples to be built in Egypt by Ptolemy V1 and V111 and Roman additions with recordings of most Roman Emperors mentioned to the last recorded being Decius c AD240. For me it has some of the loveliest intact columns, with great attention of the detail and still a hint of colour from the bottom to the top of these huge floral capitals where the craftsmanship leaps off every surface. Standing in its centre it is easy to imagine being in the symbolic creation of the original papyrus marsh. It is a temple not usually visited on the standard River Nile cruise tour package but used to be accessible if berthed alongside the town with a long delay to get through old single lock system expected as it is only a short walk from the waterfront; probably not so realistic these days.
