White Rainbows

Since last week’s blog ‘Moonbow” I have found another kind of rainbow, a ‘fog-bow’,  photographed over Rannoch Moor in Scotland.

Melvin Nicholson was out on the moor, south of Glen Coe, on Sunday when an ‘unbelievably beautiful’ white rainbow appeared.
Mr Nicholson said to the BBC: ‘It is a colourless rainbow that is made up of tiny water droplets that cause fog.
‘It’s an amazing thing to witness and can generally only be seen if the sun is behind you when you are looking at it.’

Another fog-bow has been photographed in the Cairngorms by A Luke, near the summit of Cairn Lochan.
