First, thank you to all who post on these forums. I had a pretty good idea what I was going to encounter before stepping foot on the island. I thought I would share my pictures with all of you who helped make my trip so very special. The highlights were hearing the loons at Lane Cove, swimming with the leaches at McCargoe, and the wild blueberries found everywhere.
However, the most amazing moment was seeing the Northern Lights and the Milky Way together at Moskey.

Thanks again everyone!

Fantastic pictures, of course the Milky Way Aurora but also several evening/sunset water scenes. Great exposures.

Spectacular pics...now that is something I have never seen in person...taking a trip to see the galaxy doesn't sound half bad.
