Finally, a fogbow! For 3-years I hoped to witness such a a bashful bow. This pale beauty appeared as I was driving to my office. Droplets in fogbows are only about 1/10 the size of the drops that form rainbows. The bow remained long enough for me to shoot several photos from different locations. The scene above features one of Brittany's magalithic "monuments," and was taken from Chateaulin (Brittany), France, on May 5, 2006.
