The Cuillin Ridge
I had never heard of a brocken spectre till I unexpectedly encountered one upon a skye hilltop this winter. On the clouds drifting in up the valley, an enormous magnified human-like shadow appears with a bright halo of rainbow rings radiating out. It takes a little while to realise that the human-like shadow follows all your movements, in fact it is you!
I was taken by surprise since I don’t know how to recognise my own shadow when its no longer attached to me.
