Brocken Spectre

Have been interested in Photography for a number of years but have never come across the term Brocken Spectre until now,

If you didn't know this you might just believe in ghosts !

Re: Brocken Spectre

Came across this last month, thought I knew which mag it was in, trouble is I throw away lots of what I am not interested in.
You never know, up in the Cumbria mountains, you might see it,  I have had the right conditions looking North from the top of the Beckons, long time ago, was driving a car, so it might have been there

Re: Brocken Spectre

You really need to be in the right place at the right time and for several conditions to coincide to see this and it's very rare indeed.  I've been hillwalking  for around fifty years and only seen it once in the Monadleath Mountains beyond Spean Bridge.
