This was an image I saw while wandering along the Helvellyn ridge.  Looking roughly north east from Lower Man, the sun has cast my shadow on mist passing just below me.  The coloured halo is created by diffraction through the tiny water droplets.  I've posted this shot to help illustrate the next photo taken on Great Carrs.
