Rainbow Cloud

The picture was shot during Everest base camp trek in Nepal. The phenomenon, formally known as cloud iridescence or a circum horizontal arc, paints the sky in a spectrum of colour. Created when sunlight refracts at a particular angle through tiny water droplets or crystals some 18,000ft in the air
