   Car headlamp fogbows 

  Car headlight fogbow, glory and Brocken spectre.    We are looking away from the headlight and outwards along its beam.  At centre, a glory scatters the light brightly backwards. The photographer's Brocken spectre points to the glory centre where the camera's shadow lies. The glory's rings merge into multiple fogbow supernumeraries. Fogbows and glories rarely have this finesse. These fog droplets evidently had a very uniform size indeed.  Photographed in Finland during autumn by Marko Riikonen (site) and Jarmo Moilanen.   ©Marko Riikonen, shown with permission.
