Brocken Spectre
Brocken Spectre
Descending from Sgrr nan Ceannaichean and heading for Moruisg on the right. The Fannichs are just visible in the centre. The Brocken Spectre only appears when the sun is low enough to cast your shadow onto mist, your shadow then has this floating, fleeting and ethereal effect, surrounded by a series of coloured rings, halo-like and mystical.
