I moved around a bit taking photos, but it was so slippery with a very hard frost on top of a snowfall, that I was scared of falling and breaking my camera, so after a while I stationed myself at the door of the house.
Although it was mostly just a huge arc of colour, later in the evening there was a little more activity.
Eventually there was also some pinky colour, as well as the green, but it was fading by then, and the sky was also starting to cloud over.
Earlier it had been a beautifully clear, starry sky.

Saturday morning was beautiful too - a hard frost, beautiful cloud formations, lots of seals on the skerries and eider ducks calling from the shore.
I'm really going to miss this special spot when I move.
