A few minutes after pano #11708, coming down from Grand Ballon, I saw these mirages on the horizon above the clouds recovering Alsace plain.

Bien observé. Il s'agit là des effets de la réfraction à l'endroit de transition entre des couches d'air de température différente.

I also think, that this refraction effect due to the temperature inversion is fascinating !
