That's really something!

I wonder just how often one can have the luck of witnessing something like this!!

Re: That's really something!

Only the second time in over 30 years of time spent in the mountains!

The same

The same effect seen by Whymper on the Hornli ridge during the first ascent of the Matterhorn on July 1865.

Very interesting pic

Re: The same

Indeed Whympers crosses apparation or fog bow is thought to have been a Brocken Spectre though Peter Taugwalder denied the existence of the crosses at the time.
Perhaps a bit of poetic licence on the part of Whymper?
