Visibility IV / V
Coming out of the market, I noticed one bright pearl streak in the direction of the sunset. I held on to the electric pole (wind 10 m / s) and tried to keep myself and my cell phone from swaying so that I could even get some pearl to succeed.
In my backyard, I marveled at a white cloud of clouds visible in the clear sky that didn’t move anywhere in the storm wind. Once inside, I went to the balcony, and the cloud had magnified and was visible there as well. In turn, I began to unpack my bags and trot on the balcony, literally staring at the sky, for that cloud suspected me.
At this point, I no longer imagined, but I saw them with certainty: there were delicate pearlescent colors in the cloud that intensified as the cloud expanded! At the same time, I started getting messages from my niece and her brother that there are pearl clouds in the sky (they got hooked on New Year’s Eve: D).
I photographed in turn, with a cell phone and a paperback, clouds that were expanding and whose color intensity was increasing all the time. I couldn’t believe what was happening before my eyes, and I was shaking with excitement and coldness.
Small pearl clouds began to appear as a chain below the larger clouds, some of which remained invisible behind the trees. I couldn’t leave the balcony for anything though the freezing.

At six, I dragged myself into the kitchen and noticed that milk and other foods had been waiting half past three in the kitchen to get in the fridge ...

Mainio tarina! Sen kerran kun helmiäiset kun sattuu päälle, niin... Ja kaupastahan saa lisää maitoa, jos pääsee happanemaan vahtimisen tuoksinassa :)
Kiitos, Tero! Urhoollista, että jaksoit lukea sen. :)
Näiden kuvien seuraksi ei voinut olla kirjoittamatta pitkää, pseudotieteellistä havaintokertomusta. Kun havainto alkoi pikkuruisesta kirkkaasta, valkoisesta pilvenläntistä ja päättyi 1,5 tunnin palelemisen aikana tuollaisiin näkymiin, se oli Elämys. Ja niistä syntyy tarinoita.
