Dim auroras

Last night I was chasing northern lights at Kurjenrahka national park. According to forecasts there might be a slight chance to see auroras even in South-Western Finland.

And yes, there were auroras. Not bright, but auroras anyway. Nice additions were bright moon and howling tawny owls!

Gear: E-M1X + Panasonic Leica 12/1.4. Manual focusing, 6 sec, f/1.4, ISO 1600.

Northern lights

Finally got some northern lights pics before clouds covered the sky. This time there were also very nice red colored lights, very beautiful.

These pics were shot during the night Oct. 23rd/24th.

Muotkatunturi Wilderness, rain and shine

Last week my friend Jouko and I did a six days hike in Muotkatunturi Wilderness Area, which is located in Finnish Lappland. The weather is always a surprise, you will never know in advance what you get. This time we had both rain and shine.

At this time of the year the scenery colours are very beautiful, mostly yellow and red. And if you are lucky, you might see some Northern Lights in the nights. Unfortunately most of the evenings and nights the sky was covered by thick clouds, but one evening we saw a glimpse of Auroras.

Here are some photos:
