Broken Spectre

This is the first time I've ever seen a broken spectre so was quick to snap it. Taken moments after taking off from Edinburgh airport.

Wiki: A Brocken spectre (German: Brockengespenst), also called Brocken bow or mountain spectre, is the magnified (and apparently enormous) shadow of an observer cast upon clouds opposite of the Sun's direction. The figure's head is often surrounded by the halo-like rings of coloured light forming a glory, which appears opposite of the Sun's direction when uniformly-sized water droplets in clouds refract and backscatter sunlight.
