Fascinating pic of an incredibly rare weather phenomenon – known as a fogbow

Fascinating pictures show the moment an incredibly rare weather phenomenon – known as a fogbow – was captured by an amateur photographer.

Sylvan Buckley, spent a night in the frosty Highlands waiting for the sun to rise.

Sylvan Buckley captured a rare fog bow beside Loch Baa on Rannoch Moor, in the Scottish West Highlands.

But he was left speechless when he spotted the rare phenomenon which, unlike a rainbow, shows a white bow shape through the fog.

Sylvan, 41, of Saltcoats, Ayrshire, then snapped a series of stunning photographs of the bow beside Loch Baa on Rannoch Moor, in the Scottish West Highlands,

He said: “I was up in the Highlands waiting for photos of the sunrise.

“I knew there was fresh snowfall, I knew the sun was about to come up, but then I turned around and there it was.

“It looked like a rainbow but had no colour at all. It was just a sheer white rainbow.

“It was absolutely gorgeous to see. It’s one of the things you look for but when it actually happens you just can’t believe it.”

A fogbow is similar to a rainbow, except it appears as a bow in fog rather than rain.

Due to the small water droplets, fogbows appear mostly white, with a red outer edge and blue inner edge.
