One halo form

7.3.2020 at 09.30 - 11.40 - Lapinlahti (I)
Jouni Kiimalainen

While on a shooting trip, I noticed a perimeter was beginning to form and I kept an eye on the sky. I stopped when I noticed a slightly better distinction and side suns. I photographed and waited in Varpaisjärvi for about an hour, but the phenomenon didn't change much, so I went to drive home, keeping an eye on the halo if there was a change. I drove through the Yara pool area and there I waited half an hour while taking pictures.

Rare halos

Jouni Kiimalainen

The first eye sighting in the center of Siilinjärvi while working, I drove home and picked up the camera equipment and look for the best visibility for the shooting. The phenomenon lasted about an hour and a half and in the end just above it formed the colors of the rainbow that top halo.

In the morning run, in the middle of the fog and sunshine, I found a good place where the fog arc began to take shape, after a few moments it was already very visible to the naked eye. After the pictures of the first place, I decided to move to more open terrain and even there I was able to shoot for a while before the fog evaporated.

Kuva hienosta ukkospilvestä

22.6.2019 at 14.44 - 15.00 - Lapinlahti (III)
Jouni Kiimalainen

Omilla reissuilla liikkuessa huomasin ukkospilvien liikkeen Lapinlahden Väisälänmäen suunnalla, pysähdyin katsomaan ja huomasin rintaman suuntaavaan järvenselän yli kohti itseäni. Kamerakalustoa esille ja kuvaamaan kuitenkin harvemmin nähtyä näyttävää esitystä vaikkei salamointia ja jyrinää niin paljoa esiintynytkään. Lopulta jouduin pakenemaan suurempia sateita läheisen Akkalansalmen sillan alle.

While noticing the side suns in Nilsiä, I noticed and stopped to shoot them with only those and starting curves. I kept an eye on the phenomenon and ten minutes later the halo was enough to watch and describe.
