We had been promised ideal conditions to see the Northern Lights this week — and the skies did not disappoint.
This extraordinary photo is one of hundreds posted online by keen photographers after the aurora borealis revealed itself in all its beauty overnight.
It was taken by Marta Krakowiecka, who posts online as 4xM Photography.
She took the photo at around 2am this morning, saying: “What a show over Dundee!”
Marta’s photo stands out as one of the best, but there were plenty of others to enjoy.

Katherine Fotheringham, one half of Fox in the Snow Photography, took this incredible image of the aurora above Balvaird Castle in Perthshire at about 1.30am this morning.
Meanwhile Andy Clark, also of Fox in the Snow Photography, was busy capturing this beautiful shot of the display above Perth in the wee hours.
