Duffus Castle and Aurora Borealis

I take lots of Aurora and night pictures and one of my favourite locations for these shots is Duffus Castle, just 3 miles from home. I also shoot aurora pictures at our local West Beach, just a mile from home. The castle provides a much more pictorially pleasing foreground, but the best aurora shots are taken from the beach looking north towards Wick and Orkney.
So here is a shot of Duffus Castle at night and facing north, with an aurora shot taken 2 miles away.
Cheating ?
No, I don't think so, not if you're open and up front about how the image came about.

Looks perfect to me. Thanks for sharing, Alan.

Polar bear enjoys a roll in the snow:

Here's a link to an Album with my best shots from my trip to Churchill, Canada:

https://www.flickr.com/photos/dcstep...h/30802800107/

Most of the shots were taken, handheld, with my Sony a7RIII, my FE 400mm f/2.8 GM OSS and my 2.0x teleconverter. A few were taken with the a9. Focusing was never an issue, so I opted mostly for the higher resolution of the a7.

Not bad for a 1" sensor. Sun falling behind the rim at Crater Lake last week.
