Thanks guys. The focus wasnt great on the zoomed in shots ( prob to busy singing in my head to phil collins to remember to check ) so I had to sharpen and it through of some of the detail. The reflections arent bad, but really need still water to pull that trick off, all in all a good nights shooting!

Yes, Phil Collins really added to the magic of the night  Smiley

Here's a few from the same location, we where on the bank of the River Bann outside Kilrea, display lasted from 01.05-03.15 BST, peaked at type 4 brightness with veil, bands, waves, and whirls. The NLCs could be seen reflecting on the water along with Capella, at one stage the river was subtle blue due to the electric blue colour.

Nice images,the water certainly adds to them. I only took a few as it wasn't a great display anyway and I had more cloud. Anyway I had the feeling somebody was watching me so I went home.

Excellent images from last nights display!     The water and trees really make for a nice scene with the NLCs, great location and the reflections are class.  Smiley

Another reasonable display this morning before dawn spoiled somewhat by ordinary cloud.

All very attractive shots.

Feeling someone was watching you was  intriguing to read,John . You can't really explain why either.

Great shots John. Those must have been taken closer to dawn than most, as you say,  because of the redness in the clouds near the horizon. Good job!

Well caught John!, I was clouded out but could see them glowing through the clouds before dawn so it must have been a very intense display indeed, perhaps a good omen for another tonight.
