This Tuesday I was invited, by a friend, to try capture some corona discharge in a high voltage station. Not as easy as it might sound, the corona is hard to locate with your bare eyes since it's mostly ultraviolet light, but after some trial and error, and once the eyes got used to the dark, it was possible to glimpse where the light was brightest.

One could hear the sound of discharge coming from all over the place but it's impossible to locate it by sound on distance. It was freezing cold and the exposure times varied from 30seconds to almost 5minutes.

Used the Samyang 85mm/f1.4, Nikkor AF-S 300mm/f4 and and some shots with the Nikkor 10.5mm/f2.8 Fisheye.

Made some tone-mapped HDR:s from the fisheye shots. Dr. Frankenstein kindly declined the offer to pose in the photos.

Just another ordinary Tuesday... ;)
