on the Road
Whilst out visiting a few spooky
locations one night Mike photographed this following photograph.
At first glance you can clearly
see two misty figures standing at the side of the road. The
way that the figure in the foreground seems to spill onto
the road makes it look like it's standing away from the hedge
thus giving the appearance of it free-standing.
However, this is showing absolutely
no paranormal phenomena whatsoever. When we were in this area
I was looking back over the road and could clearly see these
two shapes up against the hedges. They were being caused by
the full moon directly behind me shining through the trees
so that just there were two gaps big enough for enough moonlight
to get through to shine against the hedge as shown.
It's a very good effect and
if I had just taken the photo without specifically knowing
what exactly was causing these two shapes to appear on the
road I might have been fooled by them.
However, it just goes to show
that those misty, figure-like shapes you sometimes see do
pretty much always have a rational explanation.
