Iridescent colours seen on a cloud corona. Usually caused by light being refracted inside tiny supercooled water droplets (water that remains as liquid at -40 C) in a cirrocumulus cloud layer.
Photo was taken from my front garden earlier on today.

All About Me . . . And This Blog!
Hi, my name is Ian. I live in the south east of the UK, in a seaside town called Folkestone. I've just recently discovered the joys of digital photography . . . hence this blog. A simple enough premise, really . . . but here's a little bit more explanation anyway:
In the latter part of the 2000's, I completed a 365 photos type project where I had to take a photo a day and placed it on a web site on that same day and then kept it up for a year. It almost cost me my sanity! However, since I'm a huge fan of digital photography and I wanted to keep my shutter fingers active, I thought I'd do another blog - which is what you are seeing right now - but this time it will be much more relaxed and looser in nature. In other words, there are no set rules on how many photos I can take and show at any one time and I will do it whenever the mood takes me (or more to the point, whenever ideal photography opportunities arise!). It also doesn't matter if I find myself tending to cover the same subject over and over.
If there has to be rules, there are two.
1) The photos themselves have to have some interest. 2) Any pictures that does appear on the blog will have been taken 24 hours or less since the picture had been taken. In other words, no photos taken in the distant past will be used.
Enjoy as you continue to be a passenger as I go further still in my voyage into the woolly world of digital photography!
