I was just nodding off to sleep when my phone buzzed, my brother Blair messaging the family group chat to say there was faint aurora over Dundee.
He attached a couple of images from a friend on Stronsay showing some awesome green aurora, so I had to look. I got out of bed and stuck my head between the curtains and saw the aurora over Dundee!
I ran down stairs and grabbed the camera, a couple of lenses, tripod and my cruiser skateboard. Flung my jacket on and rammed a hat onto my head and rolled down to Wormit Bay. The Merry Dancers were putting on a good show and I snapped a few test shots, plenty of light in the sky and the calm water reflecting the colour beautifully.
I ran further along the beach towards the bridge as the aurora seemed to strengthen, so I stopped at the 'big rock' and set up for a silhouette shot. This once blew me away with the colour, especially considering it was only a 5 second exposure!
