Visibility III / V
What streaks stuck to the pictures?
It was clear and the northern lights promised something, so a fast bike ride with favorable assistance from the downwind to a distance of about 13 km, i.e. next to Turkansaari.
The gravel roads were wet and the paint splashed, but it didn't slow down the pace.
An hour passed there and the illuminating effect of the moon was quite impressive.
The stripes just faded into the pictures, but it was a bit challenging considering the picture perspective. They were there for half an hour and disappeared from the sky when the rays also disappeared and after that there was only green sky and in the end I couldn't stand to wonder any longer. The exposure varied between 1.3 and 8 seconds and the stripes remained, although the aperture was F/1.8 and the sensitivity ISO 3,200.
Even long rays could fit into the evening, even though the moon was consuming power.
When I got home, I could at least spray the bike clean.
Then just fairly treated as a bit more contrasting to reality. Fortunately, you could tell with your eyes too, but the camera captured it more efficiently.
