Noctilucent Postcard       14 July 2009



The subject matter is a cliche. Who knows how many meters of film and terabytes of image files reproduce this scene? The noctilucent clouds, however, make these images just about unique.

This was a very warm and pleasant evening and hundreds of tourists came by to photograph the castle, bridge and river from this location: Most Legii/Legions Bridge diagonally across from Narodni Divadlo/National Theatre. Most of them were attempting hand-held long exposures and only one German gentleman there knew what those clouds were. He was the only one there besides me who used a tripod.
