  • 4/6/14 05:55 PM Iridescent clouds, known as "fire rainbows" or "rainbow clouds," occur when sunlight diffracts off water droplets in the atmosphere. Though the ingredients for rainbow clouds seem simple, they're not spotted often, and are even less frequently photographed. If parts of clouds have small droplets or crystals of similar size, their cumulative effect is seen as colors. The cloud must be optically thin, so that most rays encounter only a single droplet. Iridescence is therefore mostly seen at cloud edges or in semi-transparent clouds, and newly forming clouds produce the brightest and most colorful iridescence.

It possesses a number of physiological and behavioral adaptations to survive cold nights, including the ability to enter torpor, slowing its heart rate and dropping its body temperature.

    Wildlife and nature photographer residing in Alto, New Mexico over twenty years. A retired engineer who devotes free time to my life long passion, photographing the world we share with nature. My devotion to “close-up” work with mule deer, rocky mountain elk and the many species of birds native to the sub-alpine paradise of the Sacramentos and the vast expanses of Chihuahuan desert to the south have made my work popular with locals. My photographs grace the walls of many neighbors’ homes; note cards and creative style are colorful yet show my love of detail as well as the wit of a man who is comfortable with his surroundings.

    “It has been my pleasure to capture rarely seen glimpses into the natural world. I have developed the ability to illustrate the subtle because my photographs are a study of the smallest of details and the expanses of the grandest landscapes within southern New Mexico.”
