Greetings LeaLol, Thank you for the visit and question. The clouds really appeared that way in the sky. It is called cloud iridescence and is caused by very tiny ice crystal that make up the clouds. The effect only lasted a few moments for me and I felt fortunate to have gotten that picture. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again and have a great day.
