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.
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?
At the beginning of the dark nights, I went to the center of Oulu to catch reflections of the noctilucent clouds. That season is so short and the phenomena is so eerie, almost beats the aurora. Well, almost 😉 Have a lovely start of the week!
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?
