HERE ARE (VERY) OLD SLIDE SCANS. SLIDES WILL BE RE-SCANNED, IMAGES ENLARGED AND NEW SLIDES SCANNED IN FUTURE.
Some pictures will have explaining text printed on them. More explanation below.
si00931-si00923: Wet spider web - when viewed from proper direction - exhibits rainbow colours.
si01214 and si01244: Zodiac light; note how faint zodiac light is compared to city lights 60 kms away (150000 people city) and 25 kms away ( 10000 people city in North). Some of the pictures have explaining text printed on. More explanation may be needed for the following images:
-Two first images protest against light pollution.
-A couple of rows just sunrise/twillight reflected on windows.
-Some weather patterns and weather related observations. Some of the images have explaining text. More words of a few images below.
sa00954: After summer rain upward drifts sometimes generate this kind of small "fog devils".
sa01341: A strange low fog cloud drifting over city. It was lit by street lights and other light sources when it hovered above them.
sa00844-si02051: Smokes and inversion related views.
si01812: Astronauts Nut and Bolt walk on Moon and sunshine creates their shaddows illusorily diverging. (This kind of illusion is used to argue that astronauts were photographed in studio lights instead on moon.)
si01331 and si01324: A huge sounding balloon lost in Canada after having passed the Atlantic Ocean and after having turned south above the Ice Sea it finally landed not too far away from our cottage in archipelago.
si01711-si01433: Illusion of rings (see yourself streetlight behind a bald tree).
