Clouds and rainbows

Two of my favourite things that I get a buzz of excitement looking at when I spot them are rainbows and strange or unusual cloud formations and movements.

Photographer Svetlana Kazina managed to capture a combination of the both when magical iridescent clouds appeared above Siberia's Belukha mountain which is not only the highest peak in Siberia, but a beautiful natural monument and shrine of the Altai Mountains.

The colourful optical phenomenon called cloud iridescence, is caused by small water droplets or ice crystals that individually scatter the light and thereby create the magical rainbow colours.
