Jim Henderson Photography, Professional Landscape & Fine Art Photographer and Publisher, Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
The Scenery of the Dee Book is now reissued
by the Deeside Bookshop at Ballater and is on sale at various outlets in Aberdeen and on Deeside.
Example from my old Deeside Piper work recently added to the Banchory Heritage Facebook site
Seeing the Aurora Borealis in Scotland and the UK.
Two Internet sites that will help you to see displays:
Site gives best predictive information about Solar activity and likely storms affecting the Earth.
I would recommend looking at the Aurora Photo Gallery and seeing fantastic photographs of Aurora displays around the world, usually happening every night.
Alert service for the AuroraWatch advising of storms happening from data source currently using a magnetometer source from Sumburgh.
Interesting article in wheretraveler.com about seeing and photographing Aurora displays:

Where to see and purchase my photographs

My own online library is at Crooktree.com .

A selection of my Scottish and Aurora photographs are also on the Collections Library where they are available for purchase.

At the end of 2017 I also added all my collection of some 11, 700 photos from Crooktree Images to PICFAIR and these are available at the fixed price of 31.

Noctilucent Clouds-meteor dust in the upper atmosphere-a rare summer event.
Born in Torphins with my early schooling in Banchory I later returned to Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire in 1974, after 2 years in Australia and then studying an HND in Business Studies at Cambridge College of Arts and Technology and a DMS at Dundee Tech. I lived in Banchory until 1990 before moving to Crooktree at Kincardine O'Neil.
In 1986, after being made redundant from the Oil Industry I established myself as a freelance photographer and began compiling an extensive collection of my photographs North East Scotland landscape photographs after I established my freelance photography business. I was a BAPLA registered photo-library from 1990 - 2010.
Apart from my landscape interests for a few years I was the Deeside Piper photographer and covered many events for the NTS in Grampian for 10 years. I also did general commercial and Fine Art photography and contributed to many publications and books.
My accumulated Photography Collection of film stock, B&W negatives from 1985 and my digital archive from 2003 along with all my published work has been donated to the Aberdeenshire Museum's Service for their Archives as of August 2022.
I formally retired from a commercial photography career as of 30th September, 2022 after 36 years.

2017 AURORA-27th March
 Aurora, a small display with more images on Crooktree.com in the Aurora Section and Picfair .
Images from that activity are on Crooktree.com and see the Links Aurora Photography article for useful information and links.
Aurora activity is currently subdued as the Solar Cycle is in the Minimum phase and the power levels of storms are not high enough to push south to the UK except on very rare occasions. There have been a couple of small storms in January 2021 and a  low grade display was photographed from Lossiemouth-I had cloud cover!

January 2022 gave us a small Aurora Display and although there have been others and one already into February cloud conditions  stooped them being viewed. This one was an Arc on the 8th January.
We were also given a very colourful sunrise towards the end of the month.
