Nacreous clouds


Steve Brown

Stokesley, North Yorkshire

I used a Canon 600D with 18-55mm lens to get this shot.

I caught a beautiful display of nacreous clouds as dawn broke over Stokesley, North Yorkshire on 2 February 2016. I’d never seen this type of cloud before and they were absolutely stunning. I expected the display to last only a few minutes but the clouds were visible for several hours. The colours visible were amazing and changed and developed as I watched.
