Magical Iridescent Clouds Snapped Above Skies Of Siberia’s Belukha Mountain

A picture captures a moment, and makes it immortal. It’s just a very powerful language, which communicates our emotions and it helps us to tell stories.

What is probably the best thing about it is that, it is revealing the most generous part of the human nature, the urge to share interesting and beautiful things we have experienced and encountered with other people.

Pictures taken by photographer Svetlana Kazina got the attention of many netizens.

Kazina lives in the Altai Mountains, and that’s why she got the opportunity to capture the beauty of rainbow clouds, or also known as iridescent clouds, in the sky right over Belukha mountain, which has the highest peak in Siberia (4,506 meters/14,783 ft).

This very rare phenomenon looks like a gathering of colorful soap bubbles, and is created by water droplets or tiny ice crystals, which spread out the light.

About 20 years ago, Kazina quit her job and she moved in the village in the mountain, called Uznezya in the Russian Altai Krai region, with both of her children.

Their home is a wooden hut, which is located in the amazing natural setting, and offers the harmony and peace everyone seeks.

Altai mountains, framed 300 to 500 million years back, are genuinely charming, and the supernatural retreat invites each one of the individuals who need to escape from their furious, stress-rich lives in the urban areas. 

Kazina reported: 

I regularly visit the Belukha mountain since I truly love it and the entire Katun ridge. 

From where I live, it’s a one-day trip via vehicle to a close by town, after which the street closes. At that point, two days by walking or riding a horse to the Ak-Kem valley and one more day to the foot of the Belukha mountain. This mountain isn’t only the most elevated top in Siberia, yet a delightful common landmark and holy place of the Altai Mountains, as well. I love it for its uncommon magnificence and force.

She said: 

I caught the radiant clouds on a chilly winter morning, remaining on the solidified Ak-Kem lake. Radiance is a genuinely basic marvel in our mountains. While capturing these clouds, I utilized a polarizing channel to make the developments even more clear.

Rainbow clouds are an uncommon optical wonder when dainty clouds near the Sun change to ghostly colors. The clouds in my photographs are flimsy to such an extent that they look increasingly like ribbon. The breeze at this stature was solid to such an extent that the cloud ‘trim’ changed each second.

However, after she put down her camera, she took one more shot with her phone:

There was a big colorful cloud which stayed like that for almost an hour. The colors were growing in intensity as the sun started to sink in the horizon.

These pictures look supernatural, don’t they?
