Take a look at this photo.
There are those who say it’s faked. There always are. I don’t think it’s a fake—not a deliberate one anyway.
It’s a flash photo. There’s no doubt of that. It’s at night with a brightly lit foreground.
The photographer says she saw no spectral image when she took the photo. I believe that.
It could be condensing breath. That would fit with the situation of the apparition and with the obviously cold temperatures. It could be coincidence that the figure of a woman appeared in the shape of the photographer’s exhalation. Breath isn’t noticed unless you’re looking for it. It’s lit by flash but you won’t see it during the exposure because the flash duration is very short. It could be breath.
I don’t think it’s a deliberate fake because of the second image, above the woman’s head. That image could be formed from a thinner mist from the photographer’s earlier breath. Or it could be another manifestation. Or neither.
I’m not going to make any kind of pronouncement on this because I don’t know enough about the case. Is there a history of ghostly activity at this site? Does the image remind the photographer of someone they knew, who might have reason to visit? Is it just a spontaneous image with no obvious connection to the location, or to people present?
Is it just breath? I can’t be sure.
I’m sure it’s not faked though. Mistaken identity, maybe, but certainly not faked. Fakes are normally just that little bit too good. They don’t have secondary images or confusing extras. This, in my opinion, isn’t a set-up.
The orbs are snowflakes. Don’t even mention them.
