Hunting the green flash

Last week, during the CHAMOS workshop in Luosto, we climbed on the top of the Luostotunturi (514 m), and we reached the summit a few minutes before sunset (i.e. around 3pm). As the sky was clear and the horizon low enough, I tried to take pictures of the sunset, in the hope to catch the green flash.


Well, I have to admit that my camera's zooming capacities are not among its best properties. But still, if we have a closer look at the pixels corresponding to the solar limb...


There is definitely some green! The good thing is that I had never achieved this before. The bad thing is that now I want to buy a new camera to get better results...

To be continued (maybe)...

EDIT: The same story in French (with bonus pictures) here.
