Books about Light and Colour in Nature

There are a number of excellent books about atmospheric optical phenomena, and light in nature in general. Most are illustrated with stunning photos. The first 3 are easily obtained, and I highly recommend. The remainder are also very good, but can be difficult to obtain.
