Photographer's Note

I took this picture near Midmar dam, one of Kwazulu Natal's major water reservoirs. I went fishing there and in the afternoon the wind picked up and these amazing clouds formed. The rainbow colours in the centre are formed by ice crystals reflecting light at certain wavelengths. I used my pair of polaroid oakley sunglasses to get this shot as i don't have a polariser. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. That one cloud looks like a hand holding the sun, hence the name.
