Taming The Sun™ Rainbow Cloudscape™ Artwork

"Origin of Color"- Taming The Sun Single Edition (1/1) rainbow cloudscape collection piece available in our gallery store.

"Origin of Color"- Taming The Sun Single Edition (1/1) rainbow cloudscape collection piece available in our gallery store.

Traditional rainbows are visible when sunlight passes through falling raindrops, wherein each raindrop reflects back a perfectly mirrored image of the sunlight passing through it.

Similarly, when sunlight is passing through clouds, with their various sized water molecules ranging from misty vapor to wind-carved supercooled ice sculptures, they too can display the same rainbow effect over a much larger area of the sky.

As the above Single Edition “Origin of Color” piece displays, the cloud’s own moisture content creates the opportunity for natural sunlight dispersion effects to become visible, turning entire cloud formations into a rainbow cloudscape that naturally displays earth’s visible color spectrum.

These unpredictable and breathtaking displays of rainbow colored clouds have inspired me to create an artistic expression of these fleeting moments in my Single Edition rainbow cloudscape collection pieces.
— Kevin Sibbitt, Taming The Sun Photography Artist

Single Edition Rainbow Cloudscape™ Collection

Taming The Sun's exclusive rainbow cloudscape piece collection captures the very essence of our sun's natural color spectrum with each piece having its own unique combination of wind-swept cloud formations mixed with natural rainbow color that, due to the fleeting nature of clouds, can never be captured the same way again.

What the collection's pieces reveal over time is a beautiful and varying degree of natural sunlight color mixing and intensity resulting from the cloud's moisture and local atmospheric conditions present at the moment of each capture.
