Dim night shining clouds - 31.7.2020 at 00.30 - 31.7.2020 at 02.00 Kempele Observation number 92424

Visibility II / V

A clear night was in store and there was an enthusiasm to go drag the camera backpack on the bike, luckily the extra natina sounds were greased off from the Fatbike bike.

When I got out, it was immediately clear that there was something dim in the sky, then again there was a problem choosing the location.

The bike went on and on and in the end we were at the Vihiluoto bird tower but the perspective was lousy and again the area and slow means of transport were used. In the end, we were all on the beach and from there now something a little more pleasant to represent was found than just black.

Then it took another moment to think about how it was described. The wide angle lens was broken and opaque was a universal lens and in the end there was contentment even with something.

It didn't take long for the clouds to disappear and I woke up to 2:00 so I started cycling for 40 minutes downwind home.
