it was somewhere between 10:00 to midnight I recall
Well thank-you very much for providing the information I asked for ... it just adds a little more depth to how things were when the picture was taken
Now as someone who runs my own private paranormal investigation team (W.I.S.P.S - Woodwytch Investigations of Supernatural & Paranormal Source) ... I
always look for the logical explanations first ... after all there is no glory in fooling yourself into believing that you have captured something
paranormal when all the time it was a bug or a speck of dust on the lens
however disappointing that result might be.
However, as far as your pictures are concerned it is great that you added a daylight picture for comparrison ... and all picures taken during
ghosthunts (especially the dark ones or those that just look like black nothingness) are worth taking a minute to brighten-up ... more often than not
they will reveal nothing ... but occasionally you find something unexpected ... it's happened to me several times with pictures that would normally
be dismissed even deleted.
There is clearly some kind of faint anomoly in the original photograph and the brightened version makes it look like apparitions of people ... I can
see what looks like 3 people ... one crouching down looking towards the headstone ... another standing to the right side of the same headstone looking
down ... and the third looks to be that of a child (due to the height) standing in front of the second figure ... who looks to have an arm around the
child in front of him.
The other anomoly that you included in the outline to the left of the group I believe is a headstone when you compare it with the daylight picture.
Ok, I'm pretty sure the sceptics and outright disbelievers amongst us will not let slide the fact that you mentioned there was dew on the grass ...
which implies there was moisture in the air even if it was not misty ... and therefore it is this moisture that was responsible for the anomolies.
My comment on this point is 'yes' I believe the moisture in the air was responsible for revealing the anomolies ... but not in the sense that the
sceptic would mean that the anomolies are not paranormal ... far from it !
Most sceptics like things to be cleancut / black and white ... logical ... the fact is reality does not always stick to these rule (we only have to
look at the science behind quantum physics to see the truth behind my statement).
So, what I am suggesting is that we should consider that paranormal entities might make use of the conditions around them to add substance (maybe even
inadvertantly) ... for example ... if this picture does show 3 real spirit apparitions ... how do we know that their energy has not attracted the
moisture in the air to it ?
If this is the case then it was very lucky for the OP because it means he has captures a more visible impression of those in the spirit world ...
because of the conditions in which the picture was taken.
Obviously we cannot be 100% certain of this because it is not an absolute science ... but it is something that sould not be dismissed out of hand
OP ... good picture and I for one believe it has captured something paranormal ... when the snow clears it might be worth a visit to the cemetary to
see whose name(s) is on that headstone that they seem so interested in.
