Icebow


Ice Bow

An Icebow is similar to a rainbow, except the diffraction of the light is caused by ice crystals instead of water droplets. More often, I have seen sundogs (light points on either side of the sun), which are similar to an icebow. As with many things, I don’t think that these optical phenomenon can be predicted, and you have to photograph them when you see them.

In the best light…
