Halloween Aurora

It's seems like a lifetime since i've witnessed a good aurora display, in fact it was April 2012, that drought ended on 30th/31st October. A stunning visual show on the north coast with a beautiful outburst at Mussenden temple and another short duration peak in activity viewed from the Giants Causeway. More northern lights can't be ruled out in the days ahead as the sun is pretty active at the minute.





UPDATE: Just completed this star-trail image from the night, it's 40 images stacked to show the rotation of the earth over 20 minutes and of course the aurora was dancing on the horizon all the time. Various torches were used to illuminate the temple and bring out the detail in this wonderful building right on the coastline. This and all images are for sale as prints or canvases.
