White Rainbow Fogbow

Photographer Melvin Nicholson captured a beautiful white rainbow, also known as a fogbow, at Rannoch Moor, Scotland, this past Sunday while preparing for a workshop. As its name suggests, it appears as a bow in fog rather than rain. Because of the very small size of water droplets that cause fog – smaller than 0.05 millimeters (0.0020 in) – the fog bow has only very weak colors, with a red outer edge and bluish inner edge. “As soon as I saw this wonderful isolated windswept tree, I knew that it had to be framed by the fog bow. Freshly fallen snow set the scene all around. It was just beyond magical and one of those days that you’ll remember for a long time to come,” said Nicholson. The photo was captured with a Canon 5DS and a Canon 16-35mm f/4 lens at 16mm, f/8, 1/1000s, and ISO 100. Click here to view the first image in this week’s funny demotivational posters gallery.
