The northern lights above Broadford, looking to the Skye bridge

With a rather large geomagnetic storm coming in from the cosmos I headed up to the top of the road to see if the northern lights were on show. In the Gaelteachd they’re known as Na Fir Chlis, the agile, speedy ones. They certainly didn’t disappoint with a wonderful display over Broadford bay

and I couldn’t resist using the telephoto to get in close with Beinn na Caillich and her green sky(e) background.
