16 August 2015 Aurora season is here! I usually see my first Northern Lghts in August, often around the time when astronomical darkness returns and, sure enough, last night I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't a very strong display but the colours were very nice and I managed to create this panorama just before dawn at Wadbister. See a larger version of this photo and read more about what else I saw including the wildlife I encountered last night over on my blog.

Exciting news from the Icelandic Orca Project! They have used my photo to confirm the presence of the Killer Whale known as"012" in the Shetland catalogue and "T-38" in the Icelandic catalogue off St Kilda on 1 July at the end of our two week visit there. This is the oldest whale the Project team know to move between Iceland and Scotland but she was last seen in Iceland in 2013, first identified in 1987! Thanks to them for the news but especially to Kilda Cruises who helped to make the encounter so unforgettable.

23 July 2015 I'm happy to say that I have resolved the problem that caused most of my galleries to be blocked and there remains just the odd isolated glitch here and there that I'm working on. Thank you for your patience!

I have now returned from my trip to St Kilda   and service is now back to normal - apologies for any delay and inconvenience as I catch up with outstanding tasks. I hope to be able to share more of my images very soon.
