A fogbow at Dryhope
A fogbow at Dryhope
On the drive up the A708 on a beautiful October morning I noticed a fogbow in farmland at Dryhope near St Mary’s Loch. Early morning mist was dispersing and the fogbow disappeared soon after this photo was taken. A fogbow is formed by the sun shining through fog but because the water droplets are very small compared to a rainbow, the bow is usually white. This phenomenon is sometimes called a white rainbow or a cloudbow.
