Looks scary! Like some kind of supernatural phenomena coming to snatch those people away ... OK, my imagination is running away, but it shows the shots are very effective. Great first attempts The movement blur on the figures just adds to the ghostly atmosphere.

It certainly is a mystical effect, quite glorious. I expect those who live there eventually get used to it, but it's something I would like to experience first hand.
Best regards, John

Nice shots, not seen these for a while, but your 3rd very much like one I watched at Aviemore for over an hour, always spectacular.

Not so sure on the last one though, maybe needed more to blur/soften the horizon.
Pint o' rough & a game o' darts anyone
