The things they did not see..

My recent visit to the Gulf of Bothnia as very windy. While that meant that the cold was creeping into my clothing much faster than usually, if also made those huge fields of clouds pass quicker. Waiting for the skies to clear proved to be exiting as everytime it was a surprise what kind of auroras were up there waiting to be seen.

Without clouds, light polution of street lamps, etc, are not a big issue but with thick clouds it is sometimes a nightmare. Those darn orange clouds.. Lots and lots of city lights from Oulu lit up the sky. But that purple aurora beam was too beautiful and so I took this photo anyway.

Back home, I looked at the full screen version and started to feel differently about it. Now, it seems to me that those people under the cloud cover live in their own small world, not knowing what’s really happening out there. While I was lucky to see much more from where I was standing. All those secrets behind that low-hanging orange ceiling. If they would only know…
