Finnish sky in the summer changes dramatically and there is heavy local shower called “sadekuuro” quite often.
The sky over the Arctic Circle also changed a lot during the stay in our family cottage last week. First I wondered if it was raining which otherwise looked like dark smoke under a cumulonimbus far away. Then the cloud covered over us in a moment, with the surface of the river starting to billow in dark gray by the intense wind, trees being blown and the world becoming dark with hint of heavy rain…
Then it showered at a burst. Lightning and thunder. Water through waterspout fell down like a waterfall, and we were surrounded with the sound of rain.
Heavy local shower is such a nice thing that let you pause from playing, making dinner, or hard working to look up the sky and get your arm wet like as a child. I think each of you may have own memories associating with the local shower in the summer.
After the rain, faint rainbow arched over the river.
Although midsummer has past, we still had white night. The picture left at 23:47, and right at 0:12.
