Ghostly Rainbow Illusion

As Daily Mail reported, a climber in Poland has taken this astonishing photo, of what appears to be a ghostly figure emerging from the morning mist on the side of a mountain. This illusion, which occurred at dawn in the Tatra mountains (Zakopane), is actually what is known as a Broken Spectre phenomenon. It can be easily reproduced.

since it occurs when there’s a low sun shining behind someone looking downwards into fog, with their shadow projected forwards.
