The photo was taken in Krzysz Wielkopolski And sharing it on social media made a great impression on users. 8000 responses, over 550 comments and over 730 posts. In the comments, we can read, among other things (original spelling) “awesome and terrible at the same time”, “like a hand scraping the ground!” , “Hand of God”, “Frightening to me..” or “It looks like a bear’s paw. It makes an impression” .

The other shots visible in the comments, while also impressive, are less distinct.

Then it was also lit up by the setting sun.
