Am I in heaven yet?

Am I in heaven yet?

I don't know how appropriate it is to post such a picture here, but I thought it'd be interesting to share it. I was at the top of Choc. There was a cloud only several meters in front of me and the sun right behind me. Because the cloud was moving fast, it was only for a moment that I saw my shadow projected on the cloud and something like a gloriole around it. If anyone knows what is it called, I'd like to know.

Re: Nice Brocken !

I could add that this rare phenomena is made by combination of clouds and specific angle and the orientation of the sunrays, very very rare sight. Congratulations!

Thank you for the information. My friends were then making fun of me that I had a vision or apparition and whether they could call me Moses.

Re: Stanley...

Hi Larry, Tomas and I went on trip to High Tatras last week and then he had a mountaineering training. He should back in Prague now. I know that he had a many things to do both at school and at work. Btw, I will be posting pictures from our trip shortly.
Cheers, Stan
