Arctic fogbow

  Fogbow over the Arctic Ocean near Franz Josef Land approx. 81°N.  Ann Bowker of Cumbria, England (Mad about Mountains) saw this bow on 18th July 2002 in the fog layer close to the cold ice and ocean surface. The fog layer does not extend very high and the bow's lower sections are strongest with distinct red and yellow outer edges. The vantage point was high on the superstructure of an icebreaker. ©2002 Ann Bowker, shown with permission.
