Fogbow by Robin-Hugh Fogbow by Robin-Hugh
I was in the mountains of the National Parc of Gaspésie, at about 1000 m altitude. I walked through a gray fog to the top. At the summit, the sky opened up to show a white rainbow, a rainbow of ice ?

I took a photo once with the same phenomenon and without ice. I have read that the fog has finer droplets than the rain : that's why the light through it can't diffract and the consequence is that the light stay white !

That day, I felt in paradise !

November 2012, Parc de La Gaspésie, Québec, Canada

You feel that you should be able to reach out and brush your fingers along the velvet of it. Wonderful. Ethereal.

Actually it's still colorful, but the colors are veeeeeeery subtle and you can hardly see them. The reasons stay the same.

Ah! Now I understand! I saw this phenomenon once. I was on a large boat among the islands of Southeast Alaska when I looked up and a silver rainbow. I had the good fortune of having a camera with me. I took a picture and it is displayed in my gallery, but mine is not as exquisite as yours. This is surreal! I wish I could have experienced it in real life, too. Thank you for capturing this moment and sharing it with all of us.

This looks amazing!!! Its interesting that fog can create a colorless rainbow, even if the droplets are so small. I noticed though in certain spots,  if you look close enough, you can just barely see a tint of color.

Awesome shot though! :wow:

Beautiful picture. It's apparently to do with the refractive index of each size of the droplets: fog-sized for white; falling dew for purple; fully formed droplets for the complete spectrum. This of course takes nothing away from the mystery and beauty of the event and the paradise you found.

This is amazing, I've never seen a fogbow before, at least not his (I'm assuming) large. I love photographs like this - it reminds me just how amazing the natural world around us truly can be. The landscape in general brings me such peaceful feelings (though I could easily be swayed to something lonely or even distressing given the right circumstances). Very beautiful!
