“Divine Hand”: Viral Cloud Photo on the Internet
When photographer Rogério Pacheco decided to publish on the internet his photos of the sky over the island of Madeira in Portugal, he did not imagine the meanings that people would find in the images. “It's a cloud. It has an interesting format, but it's just that, ”said Rogério.
But for hundreds of people who have shared the publication in recent days, the photographs would show the "hand of God."
Rogério says that, seeing the vibrant colors of the sky, he knew he had to photograph, but appeals for the beauty of the moment. Looking at the weather side, he knows that cloud is nothing special.
Quincy Vagell, meteorologist for Weather, explains: "Cloud formation takes on a breathtaking appearance due to a phenomenon called light scattering. At sunrise and sunset, light has to travel a great distance, going through the whole atmosphere of the earth, where it eventually disperses. The result is vibrant colors, especially red and orange. "
