Northern Light show

Following a tip off From The Notebook headed down to St Mary's at 9.30pm and had my first ever sighting of the Northern Lights. I Had grabbed the bridge camera without thought or tripod.
So when I made a few attempts at hand held and not a clue about settings, this kindly soul next to me took pity, and the camera from me. He hurtled through the settings and gave it back to me and said put that on the wall and try it.
To say I am chuffed is an understatement

The one below is me trying to put some context into my new found skills with the camera resting on the fence post

Probably the most dramatic sight was when a rich ruby red vision appeared directly above for around ten minutes.
