Night clouds

I did another attempt at night sky photography but there were some clouds that ruined the show. It didn’t really stop me shooting though, because there was a way to use the clouds to my advantage. No aurora, but the clouds kind of create the same effect! The bright light is from Föne.

The spot I visited offers open views to the north and east with Ljusnan in the foreground. There is some light pollution though, but if the sky would be perfectly clear, it would probably not be so bad. The weather forecast is saying that it will be all clear skies next week, so I will be coming back here. If only some aurora would show up as well…

For the western sky (with Jupiter and many bright stars), you need to settle with shooting up through the forest. I found a lot of gaps in the canopy that works for the purpose, and there are probably a lot more – it was a bit difficult without moonlight and snow. It was very dark so I had to use the head lamp to see where I was going, but in order to see the sky, I had to switch off the light. So I took a few steps, switched off the light, looked up, turned on the light, took a few steps, switched off… repeat and rinse!
