Fog and Fiddle

My name is Jester and I have been cheating on Hannah the Himalayan. Confession over, I took the Tracer to the Peaks yesterday [13th November 22] and caught a fogbow on film.

It's not the rarest of atmospheric phenomena-I still want to see a moonbow-but is slightly unusual. The colours are muted so look for the white arc with tinges of colour at the top and bottom and notice how it appears to move as I ride either side of the downsun position.

I promise to ride Hannah more often...

I freaked out when I saw this a couple of years ago.
I thought the aliens were coming 😅
Judging by your avatar they have :cool: . That looks like a normal rainbow rather than a fogbow, is that right? I've seen a few triple and one quadruple rainbow, doubles are fairly common.

Not a rainbow because there was no rain about the morning I took the photo, only a decent amount of mist which was dissipating when the bow appeared.

The avatar comes from a series of cartoons I used to publish weekly on Instagram.
Here’s a sample…

It's a lot clearer with the colours than in my film.

You should flog the avatars as NFTs if you haven't already, my cut is 10% for giving you the idea!

Does anybody even buy digital art NFTs? Looked into it about a year ago and was doubtful that there was a customer base. Maybe things have changed?

When the humidity is very high out here along with a full-ish moon, we get these huge moon rings that take up much of the sky. I don't have pictures as they are quite common here (being a fog-prone area). It's hard to get good night pictures in many areas of Cali because of light pollution, too :(

There's a kid in the UK who made a bit selling an emoji-style whale in different colours and the 'Charlie bit my finger' NFT went for something like half a million.
