Anybody knows what are those lines in the skies that are clearly visible in a picture below?

I am not sure if the lines were in the skies during the sunset or if they are some kind of optical artifact. Thanks.

HIee...

Not sure if you ae familiar with the term "Land of the Rising sun" the flag of the japanese ships that shows the sun rays which looks like this.

The lines you are seeing is the sun rays as it is blocked by some obstructing opaque or translucent objects like cloud mass peaks of hills or mountain. As the sun is low in the horizon with respect to where you are, these streks are often seen. The streak of light will be more if there are more variations on cloud/ obstruction edges.

Hope this helps.
