Over the weekend Jim and I had house guests who wanted to get out and see some “color.” There actually are still some staggeringly beautiful trees still remaining and I’ll share those in another blog.
What astounded us was what we saw when we returned home and looked at Jim’s digital pictures of trees around a beaver pond on Cottonwood Pass, taken October 13. He shot a series of photos playing with the camera settings. I’m showing four in the series, with the time each was taken, and some of the camera data. Then I’ll show an enlargement of the “anomaly.”
Picture # 313, taken at 12:54 pm, Shutter speed 1/200; ISO, 100; Aperture 4.0.
Picture # 314, taken 12:55:26 pm, Shutter speed 1/125; ISO, 100; Aperture 4.0. The “anomaly” shows up in the lower right dark tree area as a white elongated blob.
Picture # 315, taken at 12:55:26 pm; Shutter speed 1/160; ISO 100; Aperture 4.0.
And the last in the series, Picture 316, taken at 12:56:00; Shutter speed 1/200; ISO 100; Aperture, 4.0. Jim changed the Exposure Compensation from zero (0) to -0.33 in this photo.
And now the enlargement of the “anomaly.”
Do we have any ghost experts out there? Or other ideas about what could have caused this appearance of an “apparition” on Cottonwood Pass?
