Mountain’s Iridescent Clouds

Jan 13, 2024 | Landscapes | 0 comments

Around home we have had seasonly warm temperatures which makes sure the snow doesn’t stick around.  But a short drive from the foothills to the mountains transports you from autumn looking scenery to winter.

A strong wind kept the clouds moving and on the mountain peaks the snow was blowing off the top.  This combination along with some breaks in the clouds to allow the sunbeams through, created wonderful coloured iridescent clouds.  Click on the edge of the photos to scroll through the images.

My favourite image. Can see the snow blowing off the peak and a colourful cloud.  In order to capture this, I underexposed the photo by 3 to 5 stops so the bright highlights wouldn’t get blown out.  One of the few times I’ve used 1/8000 of a second shutter speed. f5.6 at 100 ISO.
