Glory and Fogbow

Glory and fogbow

Where there is enough fog, and the background is dark enough, a section of fogbow can be seen, plus a faint glory round my shadow. This was easier to see with the eye because moving along made it more obvious.

Weak glory and fogbow

On this occasion the fog is so shallow that only a fragment of fogbow is visible. It does seem to extend faintly in front of the green grass, though there may be a contribution from dewbow here ? There was enough fog for a very faint glory round the top of my shadow, but this is lost against the light background of the ploughed field.

Large glory and fogbow

Standing near the edge of the fog my shadow is surrounded by a large glory, with a distinct fogbow to the right.
