Tacana Summit with Tajumulco Irisation
As the sun rose over Tacana, a great streak of Irisation formed in the clouds over Tajumulco. Irisation looks like a rainbow trapped within a cloud and forms when raindrops of equal size refract the sun's light. This was only the second time I had ever seen this amazing phenomenon.

Thanks Christian!

Yeah the Irisation is really rare and amazing to see in person. I have only seen it a couple of time in the mountains.

Here is some information on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irisation
