Fogbow

Fogbow

The region has been under a long-lived high pressure system and fog has been our norm for nearly two weeks. Since I’ve done four van rides for the Village this week, I’ve had to get inventive as to where to go so there was something to see.

On one of the more clear days I headed for False Bay and the fog was just creeping into the south end of San Juan Valley from the bay. This unusual non-rainbow was the result, and the residents aboard enjoyed my calling it a “fogbow.” You can barely make out the colors from the refraction effect. I’m assuming it’s a bit subdued due to the smaller water droplet size of the fog.
