Description

Brocken Spectre (and Glory) So what can you do on a foggy night? Make Brocken Spectres of course! Here Roy Lorenz poses while being illuminated by a flash light (by me) from behind. The camera looks in the anti-flashlight direction and captures Roys shadow stretching into the distance (Brocken Spectre) as well as the Glory (the colored rings of light) that surround his head. Mountain climbers often see this effect in the fog with sunlight. However... you can make your own if you have well-matched fog water droplets.
