Svetlana Kazina quitted the job and went to the wooden hut in the mountain village of Uznezya in Russia’s Altai Krai region, near the border with Kazakhstan. Believe it or not, the house had no heating, no toilet, no running water. But it consists of what the city couldn’t offer them: peace, harmony, and beautiful nature. As a routine, she isn’t only gazing at the mountains but captures the breathtaking views.

She captured a colorful optical phenomenon called cloud iridescence when her trip to Siberia’s highest peak. The cloud iridescence happened when small water droplets or ice crystals individually scattering light, thus creating the rainbow colors. These clouds visible to the naked eyes, but the problem is that the eyes can’t see such bright colors when the clouds get close to the Sun.

“I captured the iridescent clouds on a frosty winter morning, standing on the frozen Ak-Kem lake; Iridescence is a fairly common phenomenon in our mountains. When taking these cloud photos, I used a polarizing filter to make the formations even clearer.” the woman said.
