Here in northern Nevada today the weather is a bit frightful, which makes me dream of snow and the amazingly beautiful days that come with the white, fluffy, cold stuff once it's on the ground.
So, for today's photo Friday, I was reminded of the day pictured above. It was one of those amazing days. There was an inversion, all gray and socked in down in the city, but once you climbed up into the mountains the sun shown bright and it was a gorgeous day. The sun and inversion led to this awesome ghostbow also known as a fogbow--a white "rainbow," where the water droplets in the fog are too small to refract the amount of light necessary to create a normal, colorful rainbow, but refracts enough light to make a white fogbow..
Such a fun and wonderful sight to see!
