The art that Mother Nature does is incredible. No one can resist its spectacle, especially the one made on a mountain in Siberia.
Svetlana Kazina, a local photographer, was the one who seized a phenomenon on her camera. She said that on her photos, the clouds are so thin and they look like lace.
Svetlana lives in the Altai Mountains, and she was lucky enough to take photos of the rare natural event. The images are fascinating and breathtaking. She did the pictures of the glowing sky over the mountain called Belukha, which is the highest peak of Siberia (4,506 meters/ 14,783 ft.)
Experts describe these rare clouds as soap bubbles in many different vibrant colors.
The appearance of cloud iridescence or irisation represents an unusual optical phenomenon. It happens in the general proximity of the Sun, or Moon. The colors manifested on the clouds are similar to those in the soap bubbles. To be precise in the terminology, it is a type of photometer.
Sometimes, the clouds may reflect a rainbow cloud. Although they are scarce, you must be lucky enough to see and notice some of them. We oblige you to immediately take a picture if you see this kind of a cloud.
The reason why this phenomenon occurs is the presence of tiny ice crystals or water droplets in the air, and cause the spreading of the light.
Svetlana said that the pictures were taken early in the morning. And also, she added that the wind was so strong that it changed the shapes of the clouds every single second.
The Altai Mountains are in southern Siberia, and they include one of Russia’s most stunning scenery. All the people who want to run away from the modern world, this is the perfect place.
The history of creating the Altai is that they were created with the tremendous orogenic, the building of mountain, upthrusts that happened between 500 and 300 million years before. Furthermore, they were worn down, over geologic time into a gently undulating plateau with generally accordant summit heights. The range of this mountain is majestic, and the view that the Siberia’s Switzerland offers, cannot be seen anywhere in the world.
The clouds are something like jellyfish that are floating in the sky full of diamonds. We can only imagine what a feeling that would be to see something so amazing in life. Svetlana loves to watch natural phenomena in nature. As she says:
