I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew the conditions were right: darkness and an intensive thunderstorm. Those two things are a rare combination here in Finland and I was prepared. First I took some shots in the town, but it was raining and my lens got wet.
So I relocated and chose a spot on the harbour pier. There were lightnings both to the north and to the west so I pointed my camera in the other direction after each shot. That way I managed to collect many more great lightning shots. The sky was now clear above me. It wasn't raining anymore and the stars decorated the sky. It was warm and calm. I love thunderstorms and watching it under these conditions was awesome.
The reflections of the lightning in the water was someting I really wanted in my picutres so I was extra careful pointing my camera not too high or zooming in too much. I concider this to be my starting point for becoming a passionate night photographer. The following winters I got very entusiastic about shooting Northern Lights.

WHAT DOES “STANDARD” AND “DELUXE” MEAN?
The STANDARD photos are available in two sizes (choose from the Select menu) and are printed on standard high quality photo paper (matte or glossy depending on what suites the photo best). They are signed on the back side. Standard photos are not numbered and do not come with a Certificate of Authenticity or the Full Story (see the Deluxe photo info below).

They are signed on the front side and numbered as well as signed on the backside. With the Deluxe photo comes a Certificate of Authenticity which proves that the number is authentic and made by me. A signed and numbered artwork is always an investment. Deluxe photos are delivered in a tube.
