The pollen circle of the pine tree was visible in the evening, when the sun was already at night. Somehow this was a tricky case to describe. However, I got it so as shown. #bongaa100

In Ostrobothnia, the day is quite sunny and the pollen cage is still trying to persevere around the Sun, although that is no longer a spectacular sight. The BR-processed image ( #2) has two clear perimeters and a hint of the third. Fourth image USM-processed.

The pine started pollinating a few days ago but today I only properly separated the pollen in the sky while I was using the kids swimming on the beach.

There seems to be no memory left of the pine pollen ring, as only two rings were visible. The shaking of the pine trees in the backyard confirmed the matter, ie a lot of pollen from the pine inflorescences no longer seems to come off.

The flowering of pine is now at its peak at the height of Vaasa. That's how much the ring came out in the early evening. Then the sun moved behind the overhead cloud and did not even give halos ... Photos orig. and BR.

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

Somehow it seemed that today the pine pollen would have been a little weaker than yesterday. It remains to be seen whether the situation will change as the day progresses. BR-treated version in Figure 2.

Mika Yrjölä, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I was looking for a place on the cliffs where I didn’t disturb the teenagers celebrating the end of school and not these me and settled down to watch the approaching sunset. The agenda was to try your luck with a nice weather for both the pine pollen rings and Venus bonga while enjoying. At the same time, it was easy to see that, at least in terms of pollen rings, the trip was not a wasted trip; looking in the direction of the sun, it was difficult not to notice the unusual circles around it. In total peace, I raped a few shots before the sun set between the clouds and the tree line. (As for V...

That pollen ring has been mind-boggling today, but yes, there is a lot of that dust on the surfaces now. #bongaa100 EDIT: Last added an evening ring from Ruissalo to the model of previous years.

Perimeter caused by pine pollen. The pine blooms this spring more briskly than usual, I think the sea shore water is like yellow broth and whole yellow pollen rafts drift farther from the shore.

Pine pollen is in the air, but for the time being, three perimeters are clearly visible and a quarter a hint. Figure 2 BR-treated version of number one.

I set out to photograph the beach on a light summer night and evening clouds. As I left the yard, I noticed that the pine yard was blooming strongly. As the sun went down, I noticed a perimeter formation that became clearer and clearer as the sun went down. Pine pollen, indeed. At times it seemed as if there had been another sun on the setting sun ... Great trip, it was warm, the wind was blowing softly and the nightingale was singing at the beach.
