Night Seascape

Noctilucent clouds have been really active this summer. I was camping in Juminda peninsula. The sky was clear, but the weather was really windy. I almost broke my leg, because these boulders was very slippery from the water. Images are not worth it, but I like this one.

Helkivad ööpilved vaadatuna Juminda poolsaarelt. Jalutamine randa oli juba elamus omaette. Telkimisalalt mere äärde viib lühike tee, kummalgi poolel ülekasvanud muru ja võsa, kuid kaunistuseks helendavad jaanimardikad :)

At Night

This is last Noctilucent clouds picture from that night :)

Less is more, I hope. Minimalist interpretation of this wonderful night at Nõva beach.

Falling stars and Noctilucent clouds

Beautiful but chilly night at Nikerjärv, near Aegviidu. I was watching perseid meteor shower when about one hour before sunrise the noctilucent clouds also appeared. What a night it was.


Langevate tähtede jahil.
Kodunt Kõrvemaa poole liikuma asudes sadas ikka kõvasti vihma, kuid olin kindel, et peale südaööd läheb taevas selgeks. Õnneks ei pidanud pettuma. Umbes tund enne päikesetõusu ilmusid välja ka helkivad ööpilved :) Mõnus, kuid päris jahe öö oli.

Noctilucent Clouds

Well actually I didn’t camp at beach because Noctilucent Clouds. I was hoping to photograph milky way.
I was sleeping in my 4×4 camper when, with no reason, I woke up and saw these beautiful clouds. I quickly put the clothes on and ran to the beach to photograph this beautiful moment. I stayed there for couple of hours. Just looking at those clouds. It was beautiful night.

Noctilucent clouds are composed of tiny crystals of water ice and exist at a height of about 76 to 85 km. They are most commonly observed in the summer months at latitudes between 50° and 70° north and south of the equator. Noctilucent clouds can not be predicted.


Tegelikult ei olnud plaanis helkivaid ööpilvi pildistada. Läksin mereäärde, et pildistada linnuteed. Parasjagu magasin autos, kuid mingil põhjusel ärkasin umbes tund enne äratust ülesse. Vaatasin välja, et on ehk juba piisavalt pime, kuid nägin hoopis helkivaid ööpilvi merekohal. Kogu tähelepanu koondus esialgsest plaanist kõrvale. Samas neid pilvi juba iga öö ei näe. Tasus minna
