88/366 - Aurora Hunting at The Stones

Day 88.

Went halfway around the island last night looking for the northern lights, I hoped to cathc them at the Callanish Stones but as villages lie to the north I had a feeling the light pollution would kill it. I could see a nice glow going on on the trip over but once there you couldn't tell, there was a layer of fog (or smoke from all the moor fires?!) that just added to the yellow glow from the streetlights.


I've given the saturation a boost in this so this is in no way what was visible to the naked eye but thers definately something going on.

It would make a great shot seeing the aurora over the Stones so next time theyre out I'm going to blow the power supply to the villages!
