Photographer's Note

Brocken spectre, Tatra Mountains

This is a photo of the phenomenon known as the Brocken spectre. Named after a German who first identified (recorded) it. The spectre is actually formed when your shadow is cast onto a layer of mist lying below you. So it is very rare to see one. I have been lucky enough to see it on several occasions in the mountains.

In WS another view of the Brocken spectre.
