Visibility III / V
Reposting and birding
This autumn's filming trip with a couple of filming friends went first to Kilpisjärvi for a couple of nights and to Lofoten for four nights. Although photographing the northern lights, especially in the Lofoten Islands, was one of the goals of the trip, this time the environment provided such a stunning setting that small day trips were also made during the day to various parts of the archipelago.
A couple of days before the trip, the effect of the sun's Corona opening wind had already subsided on arrival in the north and the expected values were not high for northern lights. That was the case, and although we had managed to see a few arcs in a couple of evenings, the best moments were left behind the clouds.
Tuesday 18.9. was great for the weather all day and the same continued in the evening. Although the Kp forecast showed a modest Kp 2 level for the night, we drove to Uttakleiv beach to wait for what to come. As the sky darkened, my own attention was stolen by the amazingly beautiful Milky Way. The delicate greenery was also noticeable to the naked eye, especially in the northern half of the sky.
A little after midnight, the activity of the repos increased and we got to watch even bright claims and rays from time to time, however, most of the time the going was pretty calm. However, the reposting limited to only a part of the sky made it possible to take a vertical panoramic image of the Milky Way with repos, which can rarely be properly described.
The Lofoten were remembered as a particularly beautiful environment and I am sure I will return there again.

Ihan komeaa näinkin. Mitä lie sitten paremmalla reposkelillä?
Upeaa, Karri :) Kuten aina.
Hienot kuvat komeissa maisemissa!
Mahtavat kuvat ja hienoa työskentelyä!
No nyt. Aivan mahtavia.
Lofootit on upea paikka ! Komeat on kuvat ja upeaa jälkeä. Ykköskuva todella huikea.
Lofootit on kyllä huikea paikka. Yhtä huikeita kuvauspaikkoja löytyy myös rv 17 varrelta Mo i Ranan ja Bodön väliltä. Kesällä huikea maisematie!
Kiitokset! Suosittelen kyllä Lofootteja retkikohteeksi. Näin syksyllä on kyllä monenlaista katsottavaa ja kuvattavaa. Eikä Atlantin vesi ollut vielä ihan täysin uimakelvotonta :D!
