Aurora Borealis viewed from Stinchcombe Hill Golf Course 27th Feb 2014.

Ian Smith explains; 

I was trying out a new camera lens and came across this once in a lifetime chance to see the Aurora. It is rare to see them so far South. The colour was vivid pink and easily visible to the naked eye.

Nikon D3200 with Samyang 14mm, f2.8 lens at f3.2   30 seconds exposure at iso 1600.
