Iridescent Sky…

Some weeks ago I saw a photo on Sheila’s blog explaining the term iridescent clouds. I’ll be bold and copy her words…

I saw this strange sky view (not a sun dog) and had to check out what it was. Wikipedia says, “Iridescent clouds are a diffraction phenomenon caused by small water droplets or small ice crystals individually scattering light.”

I have to admit… when I took this photo I wasn’t concentrating on the cloud colours. I was trying hard to get a parachute against the sun… silhouetted… illuminated. The camera won’t always cooperate… I don’t blame it… looking directly at the fireball can’t be the cutest thing to be doing. However, on uploading the pics I realised I had one to show off…

Parachute against the sunburst and iridescent sky... thanks camera!
