A daylight photo, yes! Seems I haven't shared a 'bright' photo in over two months.. There is however a twist in this one, I captured it after midnight Not only that but the sun set already and still illuminated that rainbow

Have you ever seen a rainbow after midnight? It sure was special for me!

'Independence Auroras'

December 6th is the Independence Day of Finland and with clear night skies the stage was set. I booked a front row seat at Vihiluoto and saw a stunning show above the frozen Baltic Sea and the city lights of Oulu :)
===
Eilisen Itsenäisyyspäivän yötaivas oli selkeä ja valmis juhliin. Varasin paikan eturivillä Vihiluodossa ja sain nauttia hieno esitys jäisen Perämeren ja Oulun valojen yllä :)
===
Am 6. Dezember wird in Finnland der Unabhängigkeitstag gefeiert und am Abend war die Bühne samt klarem Nachthimmel bereit. Von meinem Platz in der ersten Reihe konnte ich eine wunderschöne Darbietung über der gefrorenen Ostsee und den Lichtern von Oulu sehen :)

Happy New Year everyone!

Hope you had a good start and are ready for the next 365-rollercoaster!

The past year had it all from great moments which I will always cherish to challenges I'd never imagine to be dealing with. So curious what lies in front of me, I got a strong feeling it' will be a big turning point. Bring it on, 2015 :)

This photo is still my no. 1 favorite from 2014 - despite the gazillions of aurora photos I have in my treasure box :O

Introduction

Hi, I am Thomas Kast, the man behind Salamapaja. I grew up in Karlsruhe, Southern Germany and since about 14 years I live in Oulu, Finland. Besides my day job and family, I spend my time being a passionate photographer, videographer and tour guide.

Things I photograph are mostly landscapes, especially the mystic Aurora Borealis. Through my photos I am trying not only to capture visual beauty, but it is important to me to convey the atmosphere and the feelings I experience.

In my portfolio you can see a selection of my photos. It is also possible to order prints, which you can do when browsing through the Galleries.

Being fascinated by nature and technology, I also doing a lot of time-lapse videos. These projects of course include landscapes, auroras and nature, but also people, traffic and so on. In the Video section on my homepage you can see some of my work.

Thomas
