The White Rainbow!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

We were astounded at this spot on the Göta Kanal here in Gothenburg when we saw this. If my wife had not seen it too, I might have thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. This is actually termed a 'fog-bow' too. - "In many cases when the droplets are very small, fog bows appear white, and are therefore sometimes called white rainbows" Wiki

Have finished my travels now! An amazing trip through the Southwest USA only just got home a week ago. Planning the next one now and deciding between 2 months in Africa or applying for a working holiday somewhere in Europe for a year...

Herb Riddle on June 8, 2013

Nice to hear that Shaun. (Just seen all my typos above!) More places to see in Europe but perhaps grander places to see in Africa. Will try to keep an eye on your gallery. For myself, since retiring last year, we are getting to lots of places both here in the UK and abroad.

Regards, Herb
