The view in front of my window, on the Isle of Skye, was shrouded in mist a few days ago.
As the sun emerged and selectively lit up the water, I took this shot.
I understand that locals call this shaft of light a “moonshine” but after undertaking a bit of research I believe they are more commonly known as a fog bow. They are also called white rainbows. They are similar to rainbows and can form 360-degree circles or half-moon shapes. I have not witnessed this phenomenon before but apparently, they are quite common on the Island.
My name is Alison Price and for the past ten years I have travelled the world photographing wildlife, including Alaska, Antarctica, Borneo, Botswana, the Canadian Arctic, Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
