Above the city lights

Usually I shy away from city lights as they interrupt the pure feeling of a nature photo. When it’s not possible to avoid them, it’s best to make them a part of the photo. This photo towards the city lights of Oulu is such an example. Of course there are lot of opinions on photos like this. What is yours?

Have a great day (and night)


Aurora over Oulu


Change of seasons

The wonderful time when daylight does not completely fade away and leaves the twilight low on the horizon throughout the night. It’s a short time of a few weeks. The other night I was out with a friend and we saw the moon rise, lighting up the haze on the lake. Between that and the last bit of sunset, the aurora danced her welcome back dance. Everyone was happy.
Looking at the photo, do you recognize some shape or anything in it?

The accidental selfie

Need I say more 🙂 Recovering from a fever, tonight I only had a short look outside.. or so I thought. I saw that green arc working its way up in the sky. After a while this huge huge corona started to unfold, needles all over the sky. I ran back inside to capture it. Without tripod I had no chance to be behind the camera this time..

I hope you are all fine, it’s good to be back on the blog again!
