The foggy weather which has laid low in Largs this morning has resulted in a rare occurrence captured by a local walker.

Chris Hunter captured the fogbow on Sandy Bay at 8.25am on Wednesday morning.

He said: "I captured a fog bow stretching over to the Sandy Bay in Largs this morning. This is at times also referred to as a white rainbow."

A Met Office spokesperson said: "A fogbow is similar in some respects to a traditional rainbow forming from sunlight interacting with water droplets contained in fog, mist or cloud rather than interacting with raindrops as it does in a classical rainbow.

"These water droplets are much smaller than raindrops, nearly always less than 0.1 mm in diameter.

"These tiny droplets cause the light to undergo different physical processes, most notably diffraction, which leads to fogbows appearing to be devoid of colour. It is for this reason that fogbows are sometimes known as white rainbows."
