For those who are athiest or agnostically inclined I will be scoffed at.
I was there and I took this picture.
While I did not feel afraid, the energy at this park was gloomy and very heavy. Very much like the energy upon visiting the MHI at Independance Iowa. Our escort for the day, an Omaha area native would not leave her vehicle at Hummel Park. Maybe just lore that kept her in the vehicle with one finger on OnStar but she was very wary.
Observations: The anomaly in the photo to me at first made me think of a reflection like what one gets when one snaps a shot into the sun, except the "burst" of sunlight is missing. In light of that-- no pun intended--it even more resembles what you would see if you snapped a shot, for example, indoors, and light was streaming through a nearby window, and the shot was picking up the light. Of course, this photo was snapped outside with no walls or windows to create that effect!!! The anomaly appearing so window-like piqued my interest and made me think while it could be a discarded bit of cellophane, it could also be a portal to another dimension, perhaps? (This conclusion being drawn based on my personal experiences at the shrine in Conyers, GA, of which the pink tint was also of significance.)

My 'friend' isn't recycling anything. We aren't very familiar with ghost studies. FranklinFiles.net is completely unrelated - it is a conspiracy forum. It was just an oddity that came up recently - so I thought I should get some input as to whether or not it is an anomaly or lens flare.
