    Thanks for that mate. Me and the missus like the area very much so I get a lot of ideas from your pics.

    Thanks Sandra.:blush: x

    I'm glad to be of help mate, but seriously, this is a road and view, that everyone should experience at least once in a lifetime. Also, the Applecross Inn does superb seafood caught locally, (if you need any more persuading)...!

    :yes:

    I'll do that @Ghost, there's another thread I hadn't seen since joining the forum.
    Any photos that I post on here are firstly a great drive and secondly, very photogenic.

    It's only right that I should share the info.

    :yes:

    I had another trip to Skye this week, specifically, to try and catch the sunset at a village on the West coast called Elgol. It didn't work out as I'd hoped due to low cloud. I was trying to catch the sun setting against the Cuillins but, no joy, got this one though, so it wasn't a wasted trip.
    Elgol.jpg

    For anyone travelling there, head for Broadford on the A87 and take a left at the main car park. From there, follow the B8083 for 15 miles. The last mile down to the jetty is very steep and the B8083 is not the best of roads, worth it when you get there, as the view of the Cuillins from Elgol is fantastic.

    Aurora shot from last night. Just had time to pull in and throw the camera at the tripod. What a display. (Apologies for the filthy marks on the sensor, getting cleaned tomorrow). Aurora over Ben Wyvis - Copy (3)_edited-3.jpg

    More tonight as well for those who have clear skies. @Ghost

    Thanks Andy. This was by far the best display I have seen in years, dancing across the sky and changing all the time. There was an Australian guy beside us, who had never seen the Aurora before and the gasps and noises coming out of him was as impressive as the light show...!

    Thanks Phil. I always check the Ovation website before I go out, just to make sure it's worth it.

    This was so bright that the lights further down didn't affect the shot too much.

    Thanks @Ghost I did try and tag @Nilz but it didn't work and I removed it.
    I'm keeping an eye on the Auroral Oval, http://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/auroral-activity/auroral-oval website for what's happening tonight but I don't expect to see much better than last week for a long time to come, it was spectacular.

    Thanks @Nilz. I suppose the trade off for me is scraping frost and ice off the windscreen for the last two mornings, where you lads get more temperate weather. Starting to have a right winter feel at nights now, hence the good light shows.

    Some stunning inages there mate! Also just had a look on your Flickr page. Awesome!! Topnotch photos bud.
    How do you find the Sig 150-600? Have been thinking on getting a big zoom like this for a while? !

    Thanks :)

    The Sigma??? I'm possibly the wrong (or maybe right) person to ask...

    They're ****** dreadful! Or at least mine was. Subjects under 15 meters are fine and it'll produce a nice sharp images, past that distance, good luck! Mine was eventually sent back to Sigma, the couldn't find a fault but recalibrated it, which made zero difference.

    I was told from the camera shop that 'this is to be expected from such a lens', I called BS and demanded my money back.

    I think Sigma have a big problem with quality control.

    I put the extra towards the Canon 100-400 Mk2, which was money well spent, it's head and shoulders better than the Sigma.

    You have to keep an eye on sites like Auroral Oval, to see when the activity makes it worth going out and standing in the cold. It's always worth it by the way. https://www.spaceweatherlive.com/en/auroral-activity/auroral-oval
    Caught this one last month on the way home from work. There was no need to check activity, it just fired up and went haywire.
