|Fair Isle's Sheep Rock and the Northern Lights.|
So many people are disappointed that they can't see the fantasy auroras they have seen in photos. The camera records more colour than you really see in any one moment, that is because a low light camera lens allows photographers to gather more light with a longer exposers. Often making fantastic images! but sadly unrealistic... I have edited and unsaturated my photos to more accurately portraits what I saw, but in no way does this do the experience justice and my colours are a bit off too.

|I didn't know which way to look?|
180 degrees from the photo above.
|Look at the stars, you can see Orion and the Pleiades constellations in the southern sky.|
Showing just how over head it was.
|Over head the aurora streaked and pulsed reminding me of a disco.|
No wonder they call it "The Merry Dancers".
|Green curtains over the Chapel|
|It was hard to sleep knowing the Aurora was still fluctuating outside...|
but my camera battery ran out about 1:30 am.
I went to bed glowing a bit too.
