The Ice Crystal Rainbow (iridescent cloud) amazing and beautiful nature
The Ice Crystal Rainbow ~ Iridescent Cloud, Pacheco over an abandoned house
Act 3: The Ice Crystal Rainbow (On October 23rd, Along RT395, a small black car approaches the Jupiter Shack in Lee Vining California at approximately 11:27AM. unbeknownst to it's occupants, the storm of all storms has been brewing over the Pacific Ocean... tiny Ice crystals frozen miles out over the sea are just now reaching the eastern sierra ridge. Tumbling over Mt Dana and Mt Gibbs, they strike a warm air mass settled in the valley of Lee Vining. What happened next... I will truly never forget.) Earthshaker: (Peering thru the moon roof) BABE! What the hell is that. Mizzy: "What the hell is that. Looks like something is hovering over us. It's behind the clouds." (The small black car travels cautiously for a few more hundred feet, 4 eyes glued to the moon roof and the strange object partially obscured and glowing outside above the car. Only it's outer violet red rim is barely visible behind a massive low altitude Steven Spielberg like cloud base.) Earthshaker: "It's a rainbow!" I'd like to say this was a walk in the park, but in 80MPH wind gusts... it wasn't. I actually feared for my life. And I'm not being dramatic for dramatics sake. It's hard to describe what I was feeling and seeing at this exact moment.... I've never seen anything like this before and I may never see it again. It lasted a LONG time. It took a while to process what we were seeing, and I can honestly say it felt like the end of the world. In a place so larger than life, so desolate and so grand, directly above my car, a strange glowing orb appeared to be hovering over an unmovable line of ferocious clouds. When I say unmovable, I mean it's like they just kept reforming in the same place. As frantic as they were at reinventing themselves before our eyes, that cloud line you see never drifted away. And neither did that alien like rainbow orb. At the moment, I kid you not, I thought maybe the atmosphere was giving way and I felt like we might be in serious trouble. Real wrath of god like thoughts crossed my mind. It was terrifying. The wind was nothing short of tornado like, with gusts that would just about lift the car up off the pavement. Upon the realization that this event wasn't going away anytime soon. I pulled my car to the side of the road and reached for my camera. Being that It looked like an electrical storm, I quickly concluded my TALL tripod would be like dangling a candy treat in front of the thunder god himself, so I left it behind. Gladly I might add. I couldn't get this shack from the front and maintain the cloud line and halo, so I settled for a side profile..... I would have to leave the quick safety of my car to reach this composition.... crouched in the brush as low as possible.... i started firing multiple exposures at a high ISO... watching my shutter speed to freeze the foreground grasses. I rattled off 80 or so shots, all the while, a heightened sense of awareness and a growing sense of fear overcame me. Lets just say I was well aware that this could ultimately be the smartest or dumbest thing I ever did.... Considering that at any second I expected to turn and see a full blown vortex of a smiling tornado spiraling over head, or worse yet, a lighting strike. Ouch. It didn't take much time to convince myself that I got the image... vertically and horizontally, not to mention that I was scaring the hell out of my girl... who sat in the car watching me from a distance. Her mind, I later found out, deeply focus on a drainage ditch a few 100 FT from our car... in the event we needed quick shelter. How cute. I hurried back to the car in a wind battered mess. Clutching "my precious" camera like golem from lord of the rings. "My precious" A sinister grin now crossing my face.... I got it! Mizzy: "Sorry babe. Lets get the hell outa here." www.pachecolandscpaes.com PS The following is an email from the King of sky optics, les cowley, regarding what you see here. "Hi, It is iridescence produced by small water droplets in the pileus cloud. The cloud is pushed upwards above a thunder cloud. More here: www.atoptics.co.uk/droplets/iridim6.htm www.atoptics.co.uk/droplets/irid1.htm Les" his website www.atoptics.co.uk
The Ice Crystal Rainbow (iridescent cloud) - Pacheco When I look at this beautiful sky, of the small worn out cabin, I wonder if the occupants were able to take pleasure in the beautiful that surrounded them.

Ch.18-Janie and TC are offered rides to leave the Everglades to get to saftey...there is a bad hurricane coming. They didn't leave, but it was too late when they noticed the power of the storm coming their way. The pair and friend Motor Boat make their way as fast as they can to higher ground. MB stays behind at a house, and TC and J move on. They make it to Six Mile Bridge and Janie falls into the water. TC is bitten by a rabid dog while trying to save her.

Northern Lights Amazing! This is on my bucket list
The Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) & the Aurora Australis (Southern Lights) are brilliant light shows in the earth's atmosphere. The auroras occur when highly charged electrons from the solar wind interact with elements in the earth's atmosphere. Solar winds stream away from the sun at speeds of about 1 million miles per hour. When they reach the earth, they follow the lines of magnetic force generated by the earth's core and flow through the magnetosphere

Aurora Borealis, "Green Vision” – Yukon Territory, Canada. Photographer: Marc Adamus. "Our pilot took the scenic route to the Yukon’s Tombstone Range in early winter so we could get an extreme close-up of some of the most impressive and enormous granite cliffs we had ever seen. A mountain range with world-class character, located almost on the Arctic Circle itself is the best possible place to look up and admire the peaks and night skies." http://www.photobotos.com/aurora-borealis/

I'm not a big fan of posting Northern lights pics, there are so many good ones, yet they all start looking alike. I do like to post those few that seem to be even more spectacular: The aurora borealis casts ethereal shapes in the night sky of northern Norway. Such magnificent displays occur as electrons, driven by the solar wind, hit the particles in Earth’s upper atmosphere. Photo by Ole Christian Salomonsen. 2011 National Geographic
The Aurora Borealis (the Northern lights) is one of my favourite exhibitions of natural art each summer in Canada, but I don't recall ever seeing a display as brilliant at this one in Norway. I would love to travel to Scandinavia to catch this lightshow.

Aurora Borealis, saw on Animal Planet that these light shows were thought to be dancing spirits long ago
The Aurora Borealis is also called the northern lights because it is only visible in the North sky from the Northern Hemisphere The Aurora Borealis is named after the Roman goddess of the dawn, Aurora, and Boreas, the Greek name for north wind. The Aurora Borealis most often occurs from September to October and from March to April. The Northern Lights can appear as patches of light, in the form of streamers, arcs, banks, rays, or resembling hanging draperies

Aurora Borealis, Sweden ~A beautiful curved band of aurora over snow covered trees in Swedish Lapland. #nature #landscape
Photograph of a beautiful curved band of aurora over the snowy Swedish Lapland. The phenomenon of Northern Lights (also called Aurora Borealis) occurs when large numbers of electrons stream in towards the Earth along its magnetic field and collide with air particles. The air then lights up rather like what happens in a fluorescent light tube. The resulting colors of the Northern Lights reflect the gases that we find up there. The charged particles originate from the sun, and the weather conditions on the sun decide whether or not we will see the aurora. (Photography by Antony Spencer)
