I have only seen the Northern Lights once in my life and that was in Arctic Sweden 15 years ago, so when I heard that they would be visible last night from North Wales I grabbed my camera and tripod and headed to Penmon Lighthouse on Anglesey. This gives a popular vantage point, there must have been about 20 other photographers out last night, but allows a view North without light pollution and of course some nice foreground interest. This little sequence was shot at f2.0 on 15 second exposures and was my first ever attempt at a night-lapse so there is room for improvement but I enjoyed the process and learnt as I went. Amazing to see!
