A few squares from the windy beach. The starry sky was well visible despite the clouds on the moon. Sausages from the grill and hot cocoa warmed the man and the mind.

Pearl clouds

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

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.

Oli tarkoitus lähteä linnunrataa kuvailemaan, mutta pilvet alkoivat täyttää taivasta ja meren puolella sää ei suosinut valokuvausta. Maisema panoraama Karperö järven rannalta Mustasaaresta.

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.

Helmiäispilviä

30.11.2019 at 16.01 - Mustasaari (IV)
Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

Autolla ajellessa huomio kiinnittyi "ufomaiseen" pilveen ja sen takana näkyviin vaaleisiin pilviin, tietysti piti pysähtyä kuvaamaan. Mukana ei ollut kuin 16 - 30 mm ja 400mm objektiivit, no saihan niilläkin tapahtumaa ikuistettua. Hyvin kauniita helmiäisiä oli taivaalla. Mitäs mieltä olette tuosta lähikuvissakin esiintyvästä isosta pilvestä, helmiäinen sekin?

Loputon pilvipeite rakoili hetken. Mukavan tumma taivas ja tähdet loistivat kirkkaina, sen hetken.

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

Rauhallinen revontulivyö Mustasaaressa. Pilvien lomasta erottui tähtitaivas hyvin, sekä rauhallinen revontulivyö. Samalla uuden optiikan testailua.

Aktiivinen revontulivyö

27.9.2019 at 22.15 - 22.50 - Mustasaari
Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

Revontuliennusteet lupailivat yövuoroa kameran kanssa. Tutulta paikalta revontulet erottuivat pohjoisessa, täydellinen hiljaisuus ja peilityyni meri. Lännen suunnassa taivaalle piirtyi komea kaari. Pideten taivaan lakeen ja sitten häipyen hitaasti. STEVE. Kuvina panoraamakuva 14 millisellä, laajakulmakuvia 14 millisellä ja kuvia kaaresta 50 millisellä.

Linnunrata

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

Kirkas kuuton ilta meren rannalla houkutteli nappaamaan panoraamaa linnunradasta. Kun data oli hyvää niin tuli vähän viritettyä kuvaa. Kaunishan Linnunrata aina on.

Quiet aurora arc

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

The clouds lurked behind the trees and I left the objects of the deep sky alone. Guess if those clouds came in the hours .. Driving to a darker place and panoramic.

The sky looked unusually dark and I decided to go try it would be a filming spot. That was it, even the green grabbed the cell. Images of vertical panoramas at 14 millimeters.

Even though the cold wind whimpered in the corners, I had to go see what could be found in the sky. The northern lights seem to be late, but the sky looked handsome. All images panoramic.
