    I found the event really enjoyable - Alex who lead the event, was extremely knowledgeable and ran the event at a pace that could be followed by all. I took so much from the time spent meandering around Port Sunlight, viewing everything in a totally different light. A thoroughly enjoyable event and one I would highly recommend.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha

    I had gone to Caldy Beach to make photographs of the sunrise and around the posts on the beach. Afterwards I decided to go to Thurstaton Hill as the sky was clear for a February morning. Upon the hill were large pools of standing water after the rains and this reflected tree with the sun was a composition waiting to be made. Nikon D4s, 20mm f/3.5 UD Ai lens.

    The second port on a cruise inside the Arctic Circle in Norway.Just after the winter solstice our cruise ship arrived In Troms? 69?40&8242North. At this time of the year, the sun never rises above the horizon, and temperatures during the day didn't rise above minus seven Celsius. A two-mile walk to the Souther end of the island gave stunning views over the fjord and sun rise. A very cold but invigorating walk in the ice and snow.

    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to
