At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 2.8.2018 at 18.30 - 2.8.2018 at 20.00 Kontiolahti Observation number 76226

Visibility III / V

Finally a decent thunderstorm in Kontiolahti as well. A couple of years here have been waiting.

A few handsome flashes, some of which also happened to the cell. When I got to the shore of Höytiäinen, it started to rain so hard that I had to leave the place. In a 15mm Irrix, a pair of gelatin films were attached as a back filter to get the stretched exposure time long enough for the hits to take.

While waiting for the night ... hopefully the thunder will continue.
