Pearl clouds

The pearl clouds were already visible from home and I decided to go to the seaside to try if I could get a wide view. The brisk wind was just blowing ashore, but I was more specific in describing the beautiful pearls. The cloud cover eventually took power from the sky and the observation ended there.

Pearl clouds

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

Today I had to apply for a place with the widest possible view, Söderfjärden in Vaasa was very well suited for that. Very beautiful pearl clouds were waiting for their forever when I got the camera ready. I shot a panorama at a slightly longer focal length and individual shots of clouds at a wide angle. To top it all off, swans just left in the direction of the pearl clouds that I managed to get a picture of. This was a nice combination of bird photography and celestial phenomena.

Pearl clouds

While driving, the attention was drawn to the "UFO-like" cloud and the pale clouds visible behind it, of course I had to stop to shoot. There were only 16-30mm and 400mm lenses included, well they made the event immortalized with them too. There were very beautiful pearls in the sky. What do you think of that big cloud, even in close-ups, pearly too?
