Rainbow Clouds

    Newer Older

    Saw this colorful display in the high clouds and pulled into a parking lot to grab a quick photo. It faded and brightened over about 10 minutes. This is an HDR image.

      Really beautiful sky. The rainbow colors at left center looks like the Northern Lights.

      Nice photo. This is a "sundog."
      A sundog is a rainbow-like spot in a cirrus cloud. Light shining through ice crystals in the cloud makes a sundog, much like light shining through raindrops makes a rainbow. "They are reddish on the side facing the sun and often have bluish-white tails stretching horizontally away from them," say David Lynch and William Livingston in Color and Light in Nature.
