Visibility V / V
The second bridge of Lapland's journey began in an exciting atmosphere — the Northern Lights values were great.
We went with the gang in the early evening to fire the sausage, while watching the sky.
Along the evening, there were strange, throbbing spots that appeared to the eye as light green / white. They were amazed during the evening. I haven't seen anything like it before. The spots seemed to "breathe."
At the beginning, the set was quite moderate, so as a photographer, I lulled myself to the idea of "whether they are calm", this can be described nicely this time ...
We were already putting cameras in the backpack when I noticed the south side of the sky was brightening.
I didn't have time to say to Tiina like "why the skyline is so vaa ...." when I was already running! And strong, stairs in the dark up from the river bank, a camera on a tripod, breaking almost everything from "what should not be done in the dark" ... Now came the hurry!
The change of plan came on the fly, now there is no time to go anywhere by car, so I had to stay in the upper yard, because the fog had already completely covered the Teno River. Visibility was really poor. The amount of fog is somehow seen in the obscure image.
Just when I got the camera on the tripod, the whole sky seemed to explode! There were colors, fans, waves everywhere .... and a completely crazy and insane corona appeared above his head. It just went on and on on the set. The beads fluttered like in the finals of the tango qualifiers!
Quite insanely wonderful! The lights were eventually so bright that the camera had to reduce the contrast so that not all the images burst. Nothing wanted to keep up with these rogues — their exorbitant speed will surprise the traveler every time he looks. The shutter speed was also really short in places, even 0.8s was easily reached.
It was great to observe the fire with the gang. Three happy Finns and one confirmation from Portugal :) Flutter and hustle and bustle in Finnish and English, glowing and laughter, I can't describe that feeling in words :)
Eventually, the fog rolled over so uncontrollably that the cameras were turned off. However, I left it inside as I went into the camera bag and out. I read the paperwork for a moment. Then I decided to visit another yard because somewhere the living space came on again. Outside, the fog had subsided for a moment. The firefighter whispered into the fells again.
Anyone would have done the same; the camera was thrown on a tripod in less than a record time.
The revos danced for ten minutes, after which the set faded and the fog pushed back on. It was a completely insane experience :)
