The Milky Way

Last chances to photograph milky way here in northern hemisphere. Soon the night sky is too bright to see milky way. To get most out of it, the next camping trip is planned for this weekend. Hopefully the weather will cooperative with us.

Viimased võimalused pildistada linnuteed. Iga ööga jääb järjest vähemaks võimalusi, et näeks või saaks pildistada linnuteed. Eelmine nädalavahetus mereääres olles ei olnud just lihtne näha linnuteed, õigemini ega ei näinudki, aga õnneks kaamera veel nägi midagi. Eks tuleb liikuda Lõuna-Eesti poole. Seal on natukene pimedam.

To the stars

Last night we had beautiful clear sky. I spent about 4 hours just staring the stars. This satellite was just a lucky shot. We also had some northern lights. If this northern lights image is worth it then I will upload it as next post. Sometimes it is just nice to watch it, rather then messing around with camera.

Mõnikord peab ikka õnne ka olema. Kui olin kaamera statiivile sättinud ja kompositsiooni paika saanud tegin esimese pildi, ise samal ajal ringi vaadates. Kui nägin pilti mida minu kaamera näitas siis oli ikka rõõm küll, kuna samal ajal oli ka satelliit ennast pildile sättinud. Hiljem avastasin veel kolmel pildil satelliidid. Ning üks päris rasvane langev täht oli ka, kuid kahjuks see pildile ei jäänud. Mälupilt sai küll tehtud, mõnikord on tore ka niisama jõllitada tähistaevast. Päris mõnus öö sai mereääres veedetud, taamal tantsisid ka virmalised. Aga see pilt tuleb teinekord :)
Igal juhul too öö oli väärt seda rasket, väsitavat tööpäeva mis järgnes :)

Blog birthday

Today my blog got 6 years old :) When I purchased my first camera I really wanted to have a web page, although I knew that it would be quite hard to gaine traffic here. For a lot of people the Facebook is so called life :)

I just wanted to let you know that without You, I probably wouldn’t have had that kind of motivation to explore nature so often. My main goal is just to show You Estonian better side, the nature. I really appreciate all your likes and comments. As always constructive criticism is more than welcome, this is shortcut to improve my images.

Thank You and have a nice weekend :)

This image is self portrait, single exposure.


Täna on minu blogil sünnipäev. Juba kuue aastane. Ilusat nädalavahetust Teile :)

Light pillars, Valgussambad

Just an hour ago I managed to capture this image. This week we have had some nice chances to photograph light pillars. Hopefully I have another chance soon :) Light pillars are just really beautiful to watch.

Viimastel päevadel on olnud võimalus jälgida valgussambaid. See pilt on tehtud Sakus paar tundi tagasi. Võimalusel soovitan ikka pimedas välja kiigata. Kunagi ei või teada, ehk õnnestub Teil ka näha sambaid :)

MS Estonia memorial

Children’s memorial who were victims in the MS Estonia ship disaster. 

The bronze bell, a ship soul, starts ringing by itself in a strong wind. It brings like a message from the sea…

I remember this day clearly when this accident happened, there were no acquaintances who was left untouched by this disaster.

Parvlaeval Estonia hukkunud laste mälestusmärk. Tugeva tuulega hakkab pronkskell ise helisema, tuues justkui sõnumi merelt…

Huge fly agaric

I like picking mushrooms, but the fly agaric should be left behind.

Seenelkäik.

Northern lights

Northern lights season for me is started, finally. But it started quite strangly. The northern lights came basically from nowhere. We didn’t expect too see anything, so it was really nice surprise when we saw that light green started to appear from left side of this image. Sometimes wishes come true :) I really hope that this is just a beginning, but will see how much clear skyes we have.


Lõpuks nägime ka selle hooaja esimesed virmalised ära. Loodan, et see on alles algus.

Perseid ’17

This year the landscape was really good, but almost fullmoon made lots of perseids invisible to camera and at peak date we didn’t have clear sky. So to get any meteors I had to photograph towards the milkyway, perseid meteor flow was at opposite side. Thankfully I managed to get two quite bright meteors, but I really hoped more. Well, next year is another chance. Hopefully, finally I will get the image that is ready in my head.

Telkimine tähistaeva all koos langevate tähtedega ja linnuteega. Ideaalne :)

Kuid pildi mõttes läks natukene kehvasti. Kahjuks perseiidide tipp öö oli pilves, kuid see ei olnud ainus probleem. Peaaegu täiskuu kustutas kaamera jaoks paljud langevad tähed ära, aga siiski minul väga meeldib see pilt. Ma arvan, et kuu valgus isegi annab juurde, just esiplaanile, mis sest et langevaid tähti on vähem kui oleks võinud olla.

Ega igakord ei peagi tagasi tulema ideaalse pildiga, vaid olulisem on vast ikka seiklus ning kõik muu mis selle fototripi ettevalmistuseks teha tuleb.

 

Stargazing

Finally we had couple clear sky at night, but here is the thing, at summer we don’t see a lot of stars, because sun bearly goes down. Yesterday I could see milky way from 00:30-03:00 AM then the sunset glow started to appear. That’s a bummer, because the best part of the milky way is at summer :)

This is single exposure image, I tried to edit it as it was when I was out there.

Lõpuks oli selge öö ja reaalselt ka võimalus tegeleda öö fotograafiaga. Linnutee hooaeg hakkab vaikselt otsa saama kuna suht hilja läheb pimedaks ja väga vara hakkab tõusva päikese kuma tähti kustutama. Sellegi poolest üritan veel mõned korrad linnuteed pildistada enne jaanipäeva.

Moonlight Wonderland

I couldn’t decide which image I should publish, so I uploaded all four images. If you are watching this post with smartphone in wordpress reader then you probably see only one image. I recommend to type in hetkedloodusest.com
I really wanted to photograph the blood moon, but about half an hour before it started it actually ended. Because the cloud inversion. I hope next time I have more luck.
About me and my hobi, nature photography. When I was on the field waiting blood moon(about 3 am), all my co-workers enjoyed good time in spa hotel. There are times, when I think about, why I do this. I mean, I had the chance to enjoy good time with company costs, but I decided to be outside with -20C temperature and waiting blood moon…and I wasn’t alone I’m pretty sure that I saw a wolf there. Pretty scary…but I really like these images, so conclusion is that it is worth it :)

Rakvere pakub ikka väga ilusaid vaateid. Soov oli verekuud pildistada, kuid pool tundi enne selle algust ilmusid pilved välja. Ehk on järgmine kord rohkem õnne.

Moonlight waterfall

Mystical Forest

I am a little embarrassed because I was in the wrong place when the moon began to rise. So I basically gave up, but before I went to home I checked my favorite place, hoping to get some images. I’m glad that I went there. The fog was really thick and beautiful. This forest like receiving energy from that full moon. But yeah, moon is not that big about two hours after moon rise.

This is two exposure image. One for moon (105mm) and one for everything else (53mm).

Natukene piinlik. Läksin suur kuud vaatama, aga olin vales kohas :) Põhimõtteliselt olin loobunud, kuna kiiruga ei leidnud huvitavat maastikku kuu pildistamiseks. Õnneks enne koju minekut otsustasin korraks vaadata ka oma lemmik kohta (eelmine kuu pilt sai ka samas kohas tehtud) ning ei pidanud pettuma. Paks udu hakkas võimust võtma saades nagu energiat täiskuust. Väga kiiresti oli udu juba nii tihe, et kadusid silmapiirilt nii mets kui ka kuu ise. Mõnus kuid päris jahe õhtu.

Üks vanem pilt. Tee paus linnutee all.
