The beautiful fogbow which appeared during Storm Angus
A photographer has taken a picture of a beautiful white rainbow in the Scottish mountains.

Melvin Nicholson captured a stunning photo of the rare phenomena - technically a fog bow - on Rannoch Moor while out walking yesterday.

A fog bow is a colourless rainbow made up of tiny water droplets that cause fog.

Due to the small size of the water droplets it has very weak colours, with a red outer edge and bluish inner edge.

Melvin said: 'I have never seen a fog bow before and understand that it is very rare.

'It was an amazing thing to witness and can generally only be seen if the sun is behind you when you are looking at it.

'As soon as I saw this wonderful isolated windswept tree, I knew that it had to be framed by the fog bow. Freshly fallen snow set the scene all around.

'It was just beyond magical and one of those days that you'll remember for a long time to come.'
