Interesting. I have to agree with how the object looks in the picture. Like it doesn't belong. And also if he were driving wouldn't the ground beside the road be blurred? Instead the object is blurred as if he were sitting still and it was in motion.

Also, another thing I don't get is if he was sitting in his car and the thing came directly over where he was at in the street to where he could see the underside of it, why didn't he snap a picture then? If it were me I sure would have. Even if I were in such a state of awe and amazement or even terror, if I had purposefully pulled over to take a picture and had the camera ready at that time I would've snapped a picture when it was right in front of me.

Interesting nonetheless.

Well, I am stumped... what is the surprising thing you noticed about the pic?

And to the usual Greek Chorus of naysayers... this stuff happens and tech (or something looking like tech) is, in fact, seen... few smart folks are settling on answers as of yet, and yeah, lots of idiots make hoaxes, but there is something valid going on with UFO's... has been for over half a century... deal with it or not.

Looks like a bit of computerised graphical overlay to me.

Plus it would be a strange route to take if you are heading for Chester from Porthmadog as the turn off is before the area where the pic was taken. How the hell do you end up off the beaten tracks near a decommissioned power station?

The actual picture looks like it was not taken inside a vehicle and somewhere just to the east (and slightly north) of Trawsfynydd.....It would take some doing to get away at 70mph from there until you get to the A470.

Finally it's nowhere near Liverpool and it's in a totally different country - Wales. The land where men are men and sheep get worried.

As the Welsh would say "Siglen Nwy"

Intriguing, one of the better fuzzy ufo photos I've seen.

Zooming in on the object 400% reveals a definite bluish aura as described, as well as a couple of blokes standing in front of the building on the left apparently observing the photog.

One in a blue jacket and the other in a red shirt.

S&F

Well that makes sense that it would be near a nuclear plant right? If a camera is affected then wouldnt the reactor be in trouble too then. Just saying cuz according to your logic all the sightings near cities or powerplants should also be accomodated with mass power outages or something.
To the OP, didnt the story say the craft was moving slowly? So why is it blurred

Trawsfynydd was decommissioned in 1991 and all the nuclear waste was transported to Sellafield.

It's impossible for me to tell if it is an actual object in the air, or if it is a spot on a window in front of the camera.

It looks like the object is casting a shadow on the mountains.

As far as placement, it looks reasonable to me as if i took the picture i would want to include as much of the surroundings for context as possible.
What is the weird flaw in the middle?

Thanks for putting words into my mouth, but what I was saying was that the blurred effect could be from an electromagnetic field. I didn't say the electromagnetic field was so strong that it could cause interference to a nuclear site nor did I say it could cause interference to surrounding objects, but it could cause a photograph to look blurry. According to your logic a UFO affects everything around it for several miles which I do not believe to be the case.

thats because the further away things are the lighter they get (check the distant hill to the left) whats in the picture is quite dark indicating that if it was real it would be very close.

Just looks fake to me

Ok. I was at work, didnt have time to reply until now.
Quite a lot of replies, some of which ,2 or 3, are edging towards the 70 iq limit.
I'll try to hint at as many users with replies:
- the spot near the electric tower seems to be a windshield reflection on a car on that hil. notice there are other roads/features on that hill side to the right, or maybe a reflection of a caravan window, small barn/house window...That's a fair guesstimate.
- THE thing i wanted you guys to have like a sort of eureka moment if you saw picture, read, saw it again is: The object does belong in the picture after you read the story. IT'S ON TOP of that hill, far far away in the distance.
Get it ? IT@S HUGE. Look at the zise of that hill, it looks like it's car a car, road/s, other contructions, that hill is quite a decent size hill.
I you were to take the two power stations and plant them on top of the hill, i imagine the two stations would be dwarfed by the hill and by the object.
Do you see it now ? Such a massive object could cast a huge shadow as he described. Such a huge object could appear cylindrical either far away, or when right above one' head. Imagine the feeling. A 1/4 mile object above you, you'd feel like a tiny goldfish in a tank.
-The blur might be the electric haze he talks about.
-i said Liverpool looks liek a hotspot on the mufon map.
-the event on liverpool is added by this guy, who's father had the experience. He's retelling it, obviously the kid placed the event on the mufon event thingy where he lives in liverpool.
-once you understand that the object is supposed to be over that distant hill, you get a sense of scale and i can understand why someone would freak out and not be able to take a photo from underneath...some people freze, some panic, some are just pussies...he did finally take a photo.

1. Image Resource Block says Photoshopped
2. Property sheet says not Photoshop (likely altered manually)
3. Conclusion: this image has been Photoshopped

This is not a digital photo. It's probably an old style film camera, thats why the guy managed to shoot it while driving and it didnt come out blurry.
Show us your methods for point 1. and 2.

It's digital as soon as someone scans it. Then if it's opened and saved in Photoshop the file is altered regardless of where it came from. Even then I see no evidence that this is a print. I'd have to check but it doesn't appear to be the usual aspect ratios? Too lazy to measure.

Image resource blocks are the basic building unit of several file formats, including Photoshop's native file format, JPEG, and TIFF. Image resources are used to store non-pixel data associated with images, such as pen tool paths.

They are referred to as resource blocks because they hold data that was stored in the Macintosh's resource fork in early versions of Photoshop.

The basic structure of image resource blocks is shown in the Image resource block. The last field is the data area, which varies by resource type. The makeup of each resource type is described in the following sections.

Source

You can either query the hexdecimal strings manually using an editor, or things like ExifTool will handly pick them up for you. Most average people are pretty unaware Photoshop does this amongst other things, so when they're adding a dorky UFO they completely skip the step of stripping out the image resource blocks and disguising the compression signature. Some file formats do some similar tricks to store layering information etc ... The physical photo excuse is a bit long in the tooth even for 2006ish.

The story was pretty awful also.

Hope that helps.

P.S - you can look at the property sheet of a file in windows by right clicking > properties. Photoshop puts data there when it edits.

There is something odd about the placement.. Almost like it quite doesnt belong in the picture. Can't quite explain it.

However, It looks very much like a blimp.


Yep...

Makes plenty of sense. You can't see all the details you would assume you could.
