Strong Iridescence

Strong saturated iridescence

With a high sun these shortlived wave clouds showed the most saturated iridescence I've ever seen. The sun is just out of the top of the frame and the orange colour is from the rather distorted corona.

Strong corona merging to iridescence

I had to underexpose by several stops to prevent the colours being washed out.

The sun is off the bottom of the frame here with strong iridescence throughout the cloud.

Never look directly at the sun !   Shield the sun and use proper eye protection against the glare.
