Aurora over Scotland (65 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 The Ley au71819ajhp 
 Scotland Aurora Borealis Ley tree dying down red rays winter February 1990 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 23.20hrs UT as it started to die down and was 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 RSP11 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa and developed in this case at my local Lab in Aberdeen pushed the development 2 stops. They were exposed around the 15 seconds sligthly less than 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.

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.

This photo was from one of three films taken on the 16th-20th of February 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. This is porbably one of the most unusual events I photographed as the only sign of a display was this isolated beam of light, red to the eye, a hovering there for several minutes before disappearing without anyother activity. Susequently I have seen this type of structure described as a proton ray or beam rather than the normal electron charged rays of the more classical Aurora displays. I happened to speak to Andy Bradford who saw the same thing at Kincardine O'Neil, several miles to the west around the same time, 20.50hrs UT on the 19th February which ruled out one theory I had of a security light or helicopter pad landing light from Raemoir Hotel.

 Scottish Aurora Borealis early double active arc display Ley tree winter February 1990 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 and is the opening one of the 20th around 21.05hrs UT and was 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 10 seconds rather than the 20 I later settled on. Several of the photos show a generally poor level of activity and low light levels, not helped by the faster exposure time although to the human eye they 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. It also gave easy access to Crathes Castle which featured a couple of times as different foreground to Aurora displays.

 Scotland Deeside Aurora Borealis active moving ray red winter January 1990 taken on the Harestone Road to the west of Banchory at a small inset into a field by The Neuk farm. I cleared it with the farmer that I could park there and it gave me a clear view to the Hill of Fare to the North of Banchory. Other photos were taken at a corner layby opposite the entrance to the Ley Farm which I tended to use more as it was more convenient and a tree at the entrance gave a very striking foreground. This photo taken on the 25th of January around 01.30hrsUT and is one from early 1990, four nights before the end of the month, displays which proved to be an extremely productive decade for Aurora displays and photography. I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated by Fuji at 800asa and exposed around the 20 seconds I later settled on. The movement of the ray along the Arc from right to left is captured as a very broad band becuase of the time exposure. The rays are usually thin about an 1/8th of this band width but move very quickly. red is from the oxygen in the upper atmosphere.

I was using one or two cameras at the time, sometimes swopping the lens from one to the other camera but I later resorted to one film, Fuji,as I found that changing a lens without always checking the focus and apertures could prove 'fatal'-out of focus ort underexposed and easy to do in the excitment of the moment when the display went active.

 British Crathes high red purple nitrogen green rays winter February 1990 taken on the Harestone Road to the west of Banchory at a small inset into a field by The Neuk farm. I cleared it with the farmer that I could park there and it gave me a clear view to the Hill of Fare to the North of Banchory. Other photos were taken at a corner layby opposite the entrance to the Ley Farm which I tended to use more as it was more convenient and a tree at the entrance gave a very striking foreground. This photo taken on the 15th February around 23.05hrsUT is one from early 1990 displays which proved to be an extremely productive decade for Aurora displays and photography. I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated by Fuji at 800asa and exposed around the 20 seconds I later settled on.

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.

 Scottish Aurora Lights Deeside Aberdeenshire thin rays winter January 1990 on 23rd and first of the new decade taken on the Harestone Road to the west of Banchory at a small inset into a field by The Neuk farm. I cleared it with the farmer that I could park there and it gave me a clear view to the Hill of Fare to the North of Banchory. This photo is one of the first of 1990 which proved to be an extremely productive decade for Aurora displays and photography. I took this photo of the Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated by Fuji at 1600asa and exposed around the 20 seconds I later settled on. As there was moonlight then there is some additional overexposure element along with less saturation in the colours.

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.

The large dark feature to the bottom right is a hay bale. This second selection of three photos were taken after 23.00 as in this case with this arc starting a second period of activity which finished around 23.30UT and this was gthe last photo i took that evening.

A larch tree and its branches give a foreground frame to this photo and it looking roughly West of North.
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.

 Scottish Aurora Borealis Neuk rays red winter aircraft lights clouds January 1990 taken on the Harestone Road to the west of Banchory at a small inset into a field by The Neuk farm. I cleared it with the farmer that I could park there and it gave me a clear view to the Hill of Fare to the North of Banchory. Other photos were taken at a corner layby opposite the entrance to the Ley Farm which I tended to use more as it was more convenient and a tree at the entrance gave a very striking foreground. This photo taken on the 24th of January around 21.30hrsUT of another passing commercial aircraft leaving Aberdeen is one of the early 1990, four nights before the end of the month, displays which proved to be an extremely productive decade for Aurora displays and photography. I took this photo of the Aurora display using Kodak 400asa 5020 EES 35mm slide film rated at 1600asa, push processed, and exposed around the 20 seconds I later settled on.

I cleared it with the farmer that I could park there and it gave me a clear view to the Hill of Fare to the North of Banchory. This photo is one of the early ones, I think the fifth display, I took of an Aurora display using the Fuji RSP 11 35mm slide film rated by Fuji at 1600asa and exposed around the 20 seconds I later settled on. 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 feature to the bottom right is a hay bale. I have no record of the time of this display but probably before mid-night and I only took 8 frames. This location and the nearby layby at The Ley farm entrance with it’s beautiful tree, became my usual choices for most of the Aurora displays I photographed when living in Banchory throughout the early 90’s, easily accessible from Banchory and with a clear light pollution free view to the North.

Aurora over Deeside rty1917jhp 
 Aurora display Scotland autumn moonlight green rays clouds Royal Deeside taken on the 1st October 2012 at Crooktree, 25 miles west of Aberdeen is the first display I have seen this back quarter and probably the best display now photographed since end of the previous Solar Cycle in 2006. This photograph was taken with a Nikon D700 full frame DSLR using a 28mm Nikkor f2.8 lens and ISO settings of 3200 which allows for much shorter exposure circa 6 sec average times with hopefully more accurate recordings of these moving events. The light conditions were not perfect as the background light was from the full moon but dispels any myths that Aurora’s cannot be seen under such conditions.
Taken in the garden looking westwards as activity starts behind clouds at 00.21.10hrs UT [01.21.10BST] with an exposure of 10 secs. The rocks and broom in the foreground are lit by the full moon as is the hillside in the distance.

Photographs of the three Giza pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, the Sphinx, temples, Solar Barque museum and western cemetery mastabas, including the Light and Sound Show night views.
Giza Khafre Pyramid EG024113jhp 
 Khafre Khufu Pyramids Egypt Giza tombs limestone desert sand foreground, the second largest of the Gizah site monuments and constructed between 2558-2532BC during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafre [Greek name Chephren], one of Khufu’s sons and is responsible during a reign of around 25 years for the magnificent Funerary complex which is held to include The Sphinx. Although his Mortuary Temple is almost nothing but a foundation, his Valley Temple is a fantastic example of the skills of the early Egyptian craftsman with huge accurately cut pillars of granite which was the house after his death for numerous statues including the famous diorite one now in the Cairo Museum. This view is of the southern face showing the mainly uncovered structure although remains of the outer casing of Tura Limestone can still be seen near the top and in the distance on the right the Great Pyramid of Khufu.

 Karnak Temple Egyptian Inner Sanctuary infra red B&W Jim Henderson photo near the most sacred part of this huge sprawling site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and Karnak is the largest religious complex on the Nile. This photograph is looking back into the main area of the temple from the central court area, now a large open space in front of unusual Festival Hall of Thutmose 111. The figure is standing looking into the inner sanctum, the Granite Sanctuary of Philip Arrhidaeus who ruled briefly after the death of Alexander the Great. The obelisk is that of Hatshepsut while the smaller one on the left is that of Thutmosis 1. The distant view goes beyond the Processional Way of the Hypostyle hall, through the western Pylon, over the River Nile to the distant west bank Theban hills. In the foreground are the truncated columns of an area which was one of the oldest areas of Karnak. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm Nikkor lens with a R72 filter and processed in ID11 for 11 mins.

This view of Queen Hatshepsut's Obelisk, one of two remaining standing obelisks, is from between the fourth and fifth pylons looking north in the Transverse Hall. The obelisk of red Aswan granite is the third tallest standing in the world, weighs over 320 tons and stands nearly 30 metres. Encased by Thutmosis 111 who disapproved of his Aunt, his bid to remove her existence benefited us in that the lower section remained largely intact but higher sections were defaced by Akhenaten some 130 years later. The figure in the foreground could also be Queen Hatshepsut as the cartouche above has ripple of water and bit of the feather that appear in her Named cartouche. She is presenting Goddess Maat to Amun [not in frame] led by the Goddess Mut below. Not a very expert interpretation so do not take as gospel.

Ruling around 1400BC he is particularly known for the famous Dream Stele between the paws of the Sphinx. It is not usually part of the standard tour package so has to be entered ‘privately’ and an additional ticket purchased on entry, accessed from the First Forecourt through the eastern gate past the famous standing statue of Ramses 11. Passing through an area full of stored blocks rescued from other parts of the Karnak site, you can view restored chapels including these of Thutmosis 1V in the foreground and beyond that of Amenhotep 1 alabaster barque chapel of whom little is recorded, who ruled around 1550-24BC and although his mummy was found in the 1881 royal mummy cache but this beautiful small chapel is one delightful reminder of his 25 year reign. There is also the exquisite White Chapel of Senwosret 1, the Chapelle Rouge of Hatshepsut and a recent larger addition is the reconstruction of Thutmosis IV [Thutmose] Festival Court for a quiet, contemplative and beautiful experience to the busy main Karnak tour.

The entrance on the south side is visible but the high ground water table means it is flooded as are all the lower chamber areas. It is most famous for the references to the Labyrinth; a comparison of its mortuary and temple complex to that at Knossos by Herodotus although little now remains except for a large area of sandy mounds and hollows divided by a canal; new excavations are underway to determine what might still exist. This pyramid was built after the king’s first attempt at Dashur was abandoned owing to subsidence problems it appears unfinished at the time of his death c1797BC.

Amenemhet’s construction was found to contain fragments and blocks from Saqqara and Giza pyramids and complexes thought to have been incorporated for spiritual reasons rather than stealing them. Situated near a canal, an offshoot of the Nile it is possible that construction material was transported by water. Little is left of his mortuary temple and the valley temple accessed by a causeway is under ground water level. Mastaba’s and 22 tomb shafts for the royal harem were found on the west side.

Saqqara Uraeus Frieze EG051124jhp 
 Ancient Egypt Uraeus freize south tomb closeup cobras painted Saqqara dating from around 2500BC to the south of Cairo is the earliest stone built monument in Egypt and probably in the world and near the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis and was designed by Imhotep, one of the greatest minds in ancient Egypt and later deified as a God. 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.

Loanhead Daviot RSC wyy8188jhp 
 Loanhead Daviot Recumbent Stone Circle flankers large monolith Scottish foreground Aberdeenshire located near the village of Daviot, west of Inverurie on the B9001 Rothienorman Road. 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.

Deeside Winter Sunrise qaz0322jhp 
 Scottish winter dawn rich red colours clouds frosty foreground tree shapes Deeside colourful looking from Ord Fundlie to Beltie, Hill Fare, and Glassel near Torphins in Aberdeenshire, North East Scotland about 25 miles west of Aberdeen. Often the shapes and range and vibrancy of the colours defies descriptions and can only be seen to be believed; my experience is that the colourful phase only lasts for at most 20 minutes so it is often being in the right place at the right time and best photographed using a tripod as the very low light levels mean longer exposures especially at best quality ISO settings and overall sharp apertures.

Big Moon bnm5845jhp 
 Scottish super full moon November 2016 closest perigee Torphins Deeside looking from Ord Fundlie to Learney Hill above Torphins Torphins in Aberdeenshire, North East Scotland about 25 miles west of Aberdeen. Using a 300 mm zoom lens fully extended on a tripod with a cable release as the exposure time was .4 of a second at f8 with an ISO of 640. This is not what would be deemed astronomical quality but gives the false impression it is bigger than it is as so close to a natural foreground whereas a few hours later it will appear much smaller high in the night sky-infact it is exactly the same size in reality. This was taken the evening after the fullest moon when less cloud let it be visible-the last time this close and as 'big' was 1948. It is all relative to the beholder and certainly other full moons appear much the same-taken as it clears the hill top as gives more nof a sense of scale.

Banchory Approach zxc0830jhp 
 Banchory Dee Street Bellfield spring trees Kincardineshire Royal Deeside Scotland view taken from the south after crossing the River Dee Bridge and approaching the main town of this first and largest Deeside town some 18 miles west of Aberdeen in North East Scotland. It is situated to the north of the River Dee. It has always been a main visitor centre either for day trippers from Aberdeen or the usual flow of coaches and other visitors heading from Aberdeen westwards to Braemar and from there south to Perth or north to Inverness.

In the great hall is the Horn of Leys, supposedly a symbol of this grant.
The tower house is one of the finest examples of the period and some of the original wall paintings still survive.
