UNION query and image data type

I have a UNION query that defines a view.  One of the columns in the query is a image data type.  When I try to save the view, I get this message:

"The image data cannot be selected as DISTINCT because it is not comparable".  

I understand how image data is not comparable, but where is the DISTINCT coming from?  I am not specifying DISTINCT.  Is there a way around this?
