A stunning shot of a white rainbow has been captured by a photographer over Rannoch Moor in the west of Scotland.
Known also as a ‘fog bow’, the image was captured by Melvin Nicholson.
Melvin Nicholson w as out on the moor, south of Glen Coe, on Sunday when the “unbelievably beautiful” white rainbow appeared.
Mr Nicholson said: “It is a colourless rainbow that is made up of tiny water droplets that cause fog.
He said an isolated windswept tree, framed by the fog bow, completed the shot.
A fog bow is a similar phenomenon to a rainbow; however, 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 0.05mm – the fog bow has only very weak colors, with a red outer edge and bluish inner edge.
