Primary rainbow

15.6.2021 at 22.05 - 22.40 - Nurmes, Valtimo (V)
Raija Kokkola

The evening sun was setting after a stormy day and dark clouds were flying in the sky. So I thought that if it hurts appropriately then there would be a rainbow at sunset. And so it came - the magnificent double arches - which could be admired for a while in really bright colors. As the sun unfolds, the colors become even more intense at sunset. A great sight at the end of a stormy day in the Artery.

Seeing almond clouds is always great. Thunder had just been and I was by the lake admiring the beauty of the rainbow.

The Northern Lights season now opened in the Artery just over a week earlier than what I have been photographing for a few years. Among the illuminating night clouds and the fog floating on the lake, as well as the moon, the beautiful greenery of the northern lights appeared.

I was driving at Nuolikoski in Valtimo at 8.30 pm and noticed a special cloud formation, I stopped to take a picture. Meanwhile, 7-year-old grandson Miira walked through the church village of Valtimo and found himself in the middle of a vortex. Due to the force of the vortex, the leaves and stones rotate on Miira's cheeks.
