A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Boris Borisovitch was walking on Mount Yukspor, Khibini mountains in the centre of the Kola Peninsula, Arctic Russia, when magically a fogbow, brocken spectre colored by a glory magically appeared in front of him. WHOA! 3 amazing sky weather phenomena captured in one picture!

Boris casts a long shadow through the thin mist to create a ghostly ‘Brocken Spectre’.

Surrounding his head’s shadow, or more accurately the position the camera shadow would occupy, is a small bright circular glory.

The whole scene is dominated by a huge and almost white fogbow with an inner, more coloured, supernumerary fringe.
