Alan reports that he was returning home, from photographing the amazing auroral display of November 07-08 at Hopeman Beach, when he noticed the northern sky completely filled with bright rays. The only clear spot he could find to take a photo was the graveyard on the outskirts of Duffus village.  Having taken this extraordinary shot the auroral activity quietened down again.
