The Broken Specter

“The Broken Specter.” Sounds like the title of a horror movie, but it is actually the name of an unusual illusion, usually seen in the mountains of Poland. When the conditions are just right, a person walking on a mountainside can see his shadow cast onto the top of clouds settled on a lower altitude. This creates a ghost-like figure. This one was capture on the Tatra Mountains in Poland.

One thought on “The Broken Specter

  1. Overall, I’m quite impressed with the Tatra. Though not the highest mountains in Europe, they are rugged and beautiful with a good network of trails and fun scrambles, I’ll definitely be heading back one of these days and wander around for a week or two.
