Halo on Weissmies
A solar halo "glory" (or the Spectre of the Brocken) observed at the beginning of the Weissmies (4023 m) SSE-ridge on August 21, 2006. One can see a projection of myself (in the middle of the glory) and of the ridge onto the clouds. Visible on the background: part of Alphubel (4206 m, on the left), Täschhorn (4491 m, in the middle) and Dom (4545 m, on the right).
