Backstory: Since 1996 I have been working on expedition ships to the Polar Region for documenting the climate changes that affect the end of our earth. In the summer of 2012 I was onboard the Akademik Ioffe with OneOcean Expeditions and while cruising through the ice we came across this breathtaking fogbow. During all these years I have seen many of them but never a triple formation. A fog bow is a similar phenomenon to a rainbow, however, as its name suggests, it appears as a bow in fog rather than rain. I was stunned and I waited until I had enough ice around it to  bring more dynamism to the image captured.
