Duffus Castle and Aurora Borealis

I take lots of Aurora and night pictures and one of my favourite locations for these shots is Duffus Castle, just 3 miles from home. I also shoot aurora pictures at our local West Beach, just a mile from home. The castle provides a much more pictorially pleasing foreground, but the best aurora shots are taken from the beach looking north towards Wick and Orkney.
So here is a shot of Duffus Castle at night and facing north, with an aurora shot taken 2 miles away.
Cheating ?
No, I don't think so, not if you're open and up front about how the image came about.

Looks perfect to me. Thanks for sharing, Alan.

Polar bear enjoys a roll in the snow:

Polar Bear Rolling In Snow by David Stephens, on Flickr

Here's a link to an Album with my best shots from my trip to Churchill, Canada:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/dcstep...h/30802800107/

Most of the shots were taken, handheld, with my Sony a7RIII, my FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS and my 2.0x teleconverter. A few were taken with the a9. Focusing was never an issue, so I opted mostly for the higher resolution of the a7.

Not bad for a 1" sensor. Sun falling behind the rim at Crater Lake last week.

Nice to get "explored" on turkey day, and finally a shot that I actually think is worthy. These two youngsters were just having a ball that day as I watched them play.

Not sure if all you guys are super-talented or the equipment you're using makes it look that way. In any case, keep'em coming!

I think most of us are what I call "blue collar", in that we've been working at it for many years, as a passion. The right equipment helps, but you can get into nature shooting with a Sony RX-10 for way less than we had to spend years ago.

Jump in and just keep trying to present something better each time. You're sure to improve if you keep at it. Dave

Terry, incredible low clouds over a crystal-clear scene.

The rain certainly saved Thanksgiving in Northern California. Thanksgiving morning I took the A9 out with a Canon 500 +1.4 mounted using the Sigma MC-11. With the latest firmware update, they seem to have stepped ahead of the Metabones for the time being.

Great shot.

Does the MC-11 allow "Lock-on" modes yet?
