Morning and night view from the lodge we are staying in!
A few test shots from the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II camera. Heavy rain clouds have been a frequent site the last few days.
Didn’t have time to get to a properly dark place for this years meteor shower but managed to capture a few from my roof. Too bad the best one was just between frames
Here’s a few photos from my last trip to Kiilopää Fell Centre in Lapland.

Last Friday, the 12th of September, was quite unusual. There had been lots of solar activity earlier that week and a pretty strong geomagnetic storm was predicted to arrive to earth on Friday. The predictions said that the storm would reach lever 6 or G2 and that auroras could be seen as far south as Helsinki and even further south in Estonia and British Isles.
Indeed they were right and even though the moon was up, it was pretty cloudy and I didn’t have a chance to leave the light polluted city area for a better place I got some photos of the northern lights from Tapiola Espoo!
Last night was again filled with flashes of light. This time the storm passed almost right over my house. Last photo is during the hardest rainfall when it was coming almost vertically and everything was pretty grey between the lightning strikes.
