The Sun has left us . . .

Et eller annet ropte på meg fra utenfra og jeg har ingen anelse hva det var. Jeg bare visste at jeg måtte ut – fort!

Something called to me from outside, but I have no idea what it was.
I only knew I had to get out – fast!
Bilde 192Men heldigvis hadde jeg åndsnærværelse til å hanke med meg kameraet i farten . . .
Solen har forlatt oss, men det har sannelig ikke ‘lyset’

Fortunately I had the wits to grab my camera running for the door . . .
The sun has left us, but ‘the light’ has certainly not!
Bilde 196bDet går en stund mellom hver gang man kan oppleve noe slikt som dette!

You’ll have to wait for quite a while before experiencing anything quite like this!
Bilde 204bDette motivet skapte en spennende effekt!
This motive created an exiting effect.
Bilde 207bOg et gratulerer med dagen til min venn Maurice i USA. Måtte dette bildet gi deg enda litt mer inspirasjon for ditt neste kunstverk!

And a Happy Birthday to my friend Maurice in USA. I hope this picture may give you inspiration to yet another artwork!

Bilde 213bOg så var alt ubønnhørlig over . . .
And then everything was over . . .

Eller var det? To timer senere ringte telefonen.  Klokken  var 01.30 am  og mitt objektiv protesterte på det heftigste, men beskjeden var ikke til å misfortstå: Kom deg ut!

Or was it really? Two hours later my phone rang. The time was 01.30 AM and my lense protested wildly, but the message was not to misunderstand: Get the hell out there – now!!!
Bilde 221bJeg har ikke objektiver for å kunne fotografere på svarte natta, men med en ISO på effektiv smertegrense og en lukker som ikke passer i gammelmannshender så ble det likevel et slags bilde. Og dette er altså ikke nordlys! Men likevel noe man ikke ser hver dag – eller natt!
En spesiell takk til Paul Schlyter som kunne bidra med ekstra informasjon vedrørende denne typen skyer:

I don’t have lenses for photography in the black of night! But with an ISO close to its effective breaking point and a shutter that should not be used by old hands like mine,  the result came through.  And this is NOT aurora borealis! A  picture that may be published because this is something we may not se every day – or night!. . .

A special thanks to Paul Schlyter who supplied extrta information about this type of clouds:

    What a sky. Winter is upon you?

    • Seenorway says:

      No, Rajiv, that’s the worst of it! It’s mid-summer up here. Down here where I live, the sun will disappear under the horizon for 4-5 hours during night, but further north (30 deg. North) it only touches the horizon and goes back up. Then you’ve got sunshine 24/7 🙂
