Aurora over Scotland (90 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.

Aurora over Stone Circle SO0213941jhp 
 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.

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.

Aurora Red Corona aucf137013jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Scottish Corona display red green rays forest silhouette Aberdeenshire Deeside photographed over Ord Fundlie forest near Kincardine O'Neil on Royal Deeside west of Aberdeen and unusually this started around 16.00 hours as a major storm on 20th November 2003, 25 miles west of Aberdeen. In hindsight this was to be one of the last major storms I witnessed on Deeside to date, 2018 and it continued all evening with a sequence of later photos taken over the Tomnaverie Recumbent Stone Circle near Tarland from 22.00 hrs until after midnight. I had to leave Crooktree at 18.30 to teach at Aboyne where my photography students got dragged out to witness the continuing display. This digital photo was taken at 18.00.52hrsUT for 18secs and these cf137 digital photos were taken at 800ISO, possibly realising with this new card that the previous 100ISO was far to low. The 19 photos in this cf137 sequence were taken in the space of 15 mins as photos were being 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 Borealis Scottish corona huge green rays west wings 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 23.03.27hrsUT for 16secs, showing green oxygen rays sweeping down from the west a precursor of another corona strength display with the rays appearing suspended in the celestial heights with no sign of an arc. 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 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.

 Aurora Scottish Coronal wings overhead green red rays clouds Cassiopeia 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 02.17.50hrsUT for 20secs, showing green and strong red oxygen sweeping rays of a forming coronal zenith or crown looking westwards with Cassiopeia visible towards top of the frame. What is not recorded in this still image is the degree of movement around the centre with the swirling arms of the rays as the display continues to form. 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.

Aurora Crathes Castle au83636jhp 
 British spring Aurora Corona Crathes Castle zenith crown overhead shape pastel colours turrets located at this National Trust for Scotland property near Banchory, west of Aberdeen. Taken on the 25th March 1991 at 00.10hrs UT 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 using Fuji RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen for 1600asa-pushed 2 stops however this particular film was Fuji P1600 which for a short time was their fastest slide film. They were exposed around 20secs which from experience I had settled on as about the best combination of film, exposure time and with a 28mm or 24mm f2.8 wide angle lens so these are much brighter and more colour saturated although slightly more visual than would be seen with the human eye. The photos taken in this March sequence shows the huge scale of a Corona zenith completely overhead with a pastel mix of green and red rays from high level oxygen falling from directly overhead and dropping to the apparent ground level set against the useful scale of the castle.

Aurora Corona ab00512jhp 
 Aurora Borealis Corona green red wings shape sweeping Scottish British UK Deeside eastwards Aberdeenshire taken at 00.35 hours UT on the 7th April, 2000 over Deeside some 25 miles west of Aberdeen. This event is the most major scale of display visible for as the display starts to develop and increase in power it passes southwards creating a moving zenith overhead giving the impression of looking underneath a huge crown often with multiple colours. The shape at the zenith from which rays drop to all the horizons in a 360 degree sweep can create weird shapes which are changing rapidly around the central vortex. This level of display is rare in the UK because the power levels need to be huge and are caused mainly by a CME, Coronal Mass Ejection from the Sun’s surface with the eruption aimed directly at the Earth. It is unusual for the more common Solar Wind generated displays to reach the UK let along push as far south as the Channel although sometimes they can be combined with a direct CME hit and cause large and colourful events.

On the left is a small Roman kiosk called Qertassi dedicated to the Goddess Hathor and at the rear of the main temple is a small temple from Ramasses 11 period carved out of a rock face although again relocated from near the original site of Kalabsha, some 40 km upstream on the banks of the original River Nile. All these three sites would have been flooded following the creation of Lake Nasser after construction of the Aswan High Dam in the 1960’s. In this first visit in 2000, the arrival was from the Nile cruiseboat and they anchored along the rocky shore rather than the main stepped landing.

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.

The garden area of this site has many exhibits including sarcophagi, carved capitals as well as a reconstructed Tombs, this one is known as Tigrane [Tigran] rescued from construction work in Tigrane Pasha Street in 1952. The style of decoration in this tomb is particularly important as it shows the blending of the major influences in the City’s history-Egyptian, Greek and Roman. The City has a distinctly European rather than Egyptian feel to it; it is sometimes offered as a day trip on a Cairo package but is seldom part of the main Nile packages.

Butterflies are cold blooded and require a certain body heat to be able to fly and this is one method they use to keep them mobile and on this day it was clouding over periodically. Numbers this summer of 2018 are marginally down on a decade ago but my maximum daily count by the end of August 2018 on the most sunny days has been well in excess of 50 peacocks, three Red Admirals and an occasional Small Tortoiseshell. I am hoping that my planned planting of another dozen buddleias around the wild garden to add to the 6 established ones will boost numbers. The bees have been very busy all summer and a bumper crop of apples is evidence they did their job in the spring.

Numbers overall are better this year, 2017, although still down on 20 years ago when 100plus was not unusual. So far this year I have counted over 50 at one time, mainly Peacocks and Red Admirals with a couple of Small Tortoiseshells and one Dark Green Fritillary but some good sunny spells seems to have got them active.

 Dragonfly golden ringed hawker cordulgaster boltonii wings eyes buddleia hanging Deeside Scottish summer photograph taken with a macro lenses as it appears to hang attached to the buddleia flowers possibly asleep or resting. It made no movement when I photographed it and when I blew gently on it remained completely still; I thought it had died and was stuck to the buddleia however after I returned a few minutes later it had disappeared. I checked the ground to see if it had fallen but it was no where to be seen. I had seen a large dragonfly flying the day before around the area although I was unable to get close enough to identify it. The main source of natural water is a small stream and there are some stagnant pools in the nearby forest where deep tyre tracks from tree harvesters had operated a few years before.

Blackbird Sunningl zxc3212jhp 
 Blackbird sunning spread wings dyke sunny Deeside Scotland summer photograph taken with a telephoto lens through the kitchen window as this female blackbird undertakes a practice attributed to them in summer days in strong sunlight. Despite research the general theory is that of maintaining its feathers possibly stimulating the Vitamin D produced in its preen-oil gland or maybe regulating its temperature on hot days. I have seen sparrows also doing a similar thing but on the ground, especially if it is sandy and wondered if it might be to do with cleaning away mites, as part of the sand bath activity-hen pheasants also seem to like this and often create their own sand bowl for regular use.

Corse Castle East Interior wyy4112jhp 
 Corse Castle Scotland O'Neil Forbes Interior East Wing Wall Stone is located off B9119 Tarland road-take O’Neil Corse turnoff for a few hundred yards and is best viewed from road as very overgrown with stinging nettles and is not in good structural condition for exploring. Photographs show NW tower but basic structure is a shell with SE tower beyond. Still in Forbes family, probably built around late 1580’s by Patrick Forbes, Bishop of Aberdeen from 1564-1663. Fairly traditional Z-Plan tower-house of the area and in a state unlikely to be restored. Given that nearby Craigievar Castle is closed during 2008/9 for restoration this might fill a gap as part of the same family and very much in their historical area of Aberdeenshire.
