Foto Friday: Fog Bow

Fog Bow on Haleakala, Maui, October 2008Fog Bow on Haleakala, Maui
October 2008

Fogbows differ from rainbows in that the water droplets in a fogbow are much, much smaller. See here for more than you ever wanted to know on the topic, and a gallery of images. Don't miss the eerie Finnish car fogbows!

I have got to get me a wider-angle lens. The 28mm just ain't cuttin' it. It can't get all the bow.

I looked into the cost of switching to digital: about a grand, minimum. Two for the camera I'd really want. Did I mention that doesn't include lenses? It doesn't. I could save my pennies until I can afford a digital camera, or I can buy a new lens for my 28-year-old camera -- cost: about $400. Decisions, decisions.

Yes, Canon FD lenses, around 20 years old now, can still go for $1000 or more. A 17mm f/4 lens is about $400.

I mention this only because I have nothing else to say about this photo. Look! Fog!
