Picture Story

I was hoping for the northern lights to visible from Talacre in North Wales (where I've previously seen them) but by eye nothing was visible. Instead, I focused on the arch of the Milky Way over the lighthouse. When processing, however, a faint pink glow along the horizon turned out to be the Aurora after all!

Taken with a broken camera after I dropped it in a puddle! Bulb mode didn't work any more, so I used multiple shorter exposures and stacked for noise reduction.
