Rainbow Clouds Over Everest

Oleg Bartunov, 51, who is a fellow at the Sternberg Astronomical Institute in Moscow, snapped these incredible pictures at Mount Everest.

"The phenomenon is caused by light reflecting off tiny ice crystals inside the body of the cloud's water vapour.

'I only took a couple of shots as I was overwhelmed with feelings and wanted to see everything with my eyes and prolong the moment,' Mr Bartunov said."
