Mirrie Dancers delight

The Mirrie Dancers over Shetland at just before 4am on Sunday morning - Photos: Ivan Hawick

LOCAL photographer Ivan Hawick braved Saturday night’s arctic conditions to produce a series of stunning photos of yet another great display of the northern lights.

Ivan said it was the best display in a long while despite the frequent snow showers.

The Aurora Borealis was at its best between 2 and 4am, “a real treat”, he said.

More of his photos can be found on his website at www.ivanhawick.com

Other photographers have also circulated some of northern lights  images from last night.
