I was returning home, from photographing the amazing auroral display of November 07-08 at Hopeman Beach, when I noticed the northern sky completely filled with bright rays. The only clear spot I could find, to quickly take a photo, was the graveyard on the outskirts of Duffus village. Moments later the activity quietened down again!
