An atmospheric phenomenon called the Glory or sometimes "the Spectre of the Brocken". Usually seen from mountain tops and airplanes when looking opposite the Sun, the dramatic apparition is the observer's shadow on clouds or fog, the small droplets of water scattering light back towards the Sun through complex internal reflections. From the photographer: "Once, you're lost in the forest, alone, in the middle of the night and fog hides the stars, best to enjoy your time with a creative timelapse video! I created an artificial Brocken Spectre with headlamp (like the sun near the horizon). Imagine a musical atmosphere and make sure nobody is watching you. And presto!"
