Hands up anyone who has heard of a Brocken Spectre. Nor had I.
An English-speaking man asked if I had seen my Brocken Spectre? See yourself in a rainbow that circles you. The conditions are right, and rare.
I could not understand what he was saying.
So he took me to the top of the cliff, the sun low behind us, clouds rising from the valley.
There was my shadow on the cloud with a rainbow around it.
