    For a minute there I thought it was a body. this is beautiful, love the dark background and light foreground, fabulous lighting and colour, really fabulous :o)x

  • It’s my favourite log on that beach. In this one it does look like a body but in other photos in different light and angles it can look like a seal or shark. Thanks for the great comment.

    Chris these night shots are really something else.
    Very well done.

  • Thanks Stephen. There was a geomagneitc storm that night and I could see a faint glow in the sky to the south, so I headed down there in case of an aurora. While there wasn’t a significant display, there was no other explanation for the red glow and hint of green nearer the horizon. So I think that was courtesy of an auroral display way to the south.

    Stunning Chris. Almost looks like a body drifting haha…..Love the stars:))

  • Thanks Claire. Yes the seaweed on the log adds to the corpse-like appearance. There must have been some recent rough seas because there was seaweed all along the beach and it stank like something had died.

    Fantastic capture Chris, is that ash cloud in the sky?

  • Not ash Michelle, I’m pretty sure it was a faint, distant aurora. A small solar storm was supposed to hit that night, and I went out because I could see a faint glow in the sky to the south. It was about 10pm, sun long gone, moon not risen, no city lights and the glow varied quite a bit in the couple of hours I was there. There’s also a faint green glow nearer the horizon.
