Caption: Snowbow over pack ice. The snowbow (partially seen at left) is the equivalent of a rainbow, but with snow instead of rain. It is a rare phenomenon, and requires bright sunlight and light snow. Photographed during a trip to Spitsbergen, part of the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard in the Arctic.
