Atmospheric Cotton Candy II by FramedByNature Atmospheric Cotton Candy II by FramedByNature
:star: Witness the power of nature...:star:


One of the most common (and one of my favorite) atmospheric phenomena: iridescence. Not always spectacular and not always widespread, but when the sun refracts just right through newly-formed vapor droplets, it can produce some fantastic colors ;) To look for this phenomenon, keep an eye on the "silver lining" of clouds near the sun (while at least wearing sunglasses, of course). :)

Is it just you, the camera, some filters, or do you use anything else?

Takes the right type of cloud. Some produce crazy iridescence, others don't. I didn't use any filters or paint the colors in Photoshop lol.
