From the window I happened to notice that bright night clouds. Camera in grapple and shooting from an open window. Had to reduce the opening so that the piece would not burst :)

Viimeinen kuva otettu myöhemmin, kun alkoi levitä laajemmalle alueelle.

Odottaisin kovasti ylläpidolta kommenttia tuohon viimeiseen kuvaan. On oma lehmä ojassa :)

Ylläpito? Odotan edelleen kommenttianne. Onko tuossa viimeisessä kuvassa yöpilviä vai normi pilviä?

Timolle: Omasta puolestani sanoisin, että kovasti yöpilviltä näyttää.

1.8. eivät olisi yöpilviksi kelvanneet.
