Aurora at Kukkolankoski

During the photography studies last weekend I went with one friend to the rapids of Kukkolankoski. With high aurora activity and the luck of clear skies for a short few hours, we saw a nice show above the water. It was wonderful to be in nature, seeing and hearing it.

Auroras at Kukkolankoski

Moon halo

In Haukipudas was one of the best moon halos of this autumn so far. I went out for auroras but a lot of fog made it difficult to see. Plus I missed the best part of the show. Luckily that fog worked at the same time wonders with the moon, drawing a wonderful circle around it. This particular halo is a so-called 22° halo and is ‘made’ by countless ice crystals in the atmosphere.

Have you ever seen a halo around the moon sometimes?

Time travel

Are you also doing the photo time travel? I love to look back at old photos, reliving moments, celebrations, etc.  The photo below was taken in October 2012. Back then I haven’t seen too many auroras yet. And even now – four years later – this is still one of the most special reflection nights.

I’ve decided to re-edit the photo from scratch and here are both versions: Which one do you prefer?
