At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 19.8.2022 at 02.20 - 19.8.2022 at 04.40 Turku Observation number 108684

Visibility IV / V

Around half past three, the first flash appeared in the western sky, I had already thought that the approaching thunder would be invisible again due to the rain. When the flashing started, it continued for more than two hours, although part of the sky remained behind the houses, more than 100 flashes of lightning or clouds illuminated by lightning were captured in pictures. that's how far it went. It would have looked pretty from Ruissalo's beach, but it wasn't time to go there at two in the morning. Maybe there's a chance for a nocturnal thunderstorm trip. The last lightning was visible after half past five, there wasn't much time left for sunrise, so I waited for it.

Komeita, hyvin realistisia kuvia kaukaisesta salamoinnista kaupunkimaisemassa.

Oli hienoa seurattavaa etäisyydestä huolimatta ja mieluummin kuvaankin maisemaa jossa on rakennuksia,oli sitten kuvauksen kohteena halot tai nämä.
