The noctilucent night

As the ongoing season of the Noctilucent clouds 2015 slowly comes to its maximum, I could finally enjoy one of the most wonderful night with this phenomenon over the Seč reservoir. It was 10/11 July 2015, very hot summer night, when I noticed the first structures of NLCs over the northern horizon. The structures were so prominent, that even local fishermen were shocked by the uncommon view. The clouds were visible until local midnight, but came back just an hour after again and took the stage just until the dawn. What an incredible night, indeed… Used Canon 6D Baader IR modified, Samyang 24 mm, f2.8, ISO 1600-3200 with equivalent exposures.
