Yesterday I witnessed an amazing weather phenomenon: It was a stormy afternoon and I looked out of my window and saw this amazing cloud in between the dark, lower clouds. Later I found out that it is called a Mother-of-Pearl cloud (or Nacreous cloud).
It had the most fantastic shifting iridescent colors and I ran to get my phone and camera to capture pictures of it.
The two photos above are taken with my Canon through the window.
For the two last pictures I went out on my porch in the strong wind. It was an amazing weather phenomenon where the cloud was blazing with the shifting colors. A few minutes later it was gone...
Remark: None of these photos are filtered, this is actual footage!
I am so happy I managed to catch it on camera, it was a live show I will never forget. I beats the fireworks on New Year's Eve!
Edit: This morning I caught another view of the same type of clouds, not obstructed by trees this time: Beatuful, vivid colors! And you have to be quick to catch it, it disappears in minutes.
With this post I wish you all a Happy New Year in 2017 !
