In the spirit of All Hallows Eve, this week’s challenge is eerie.

We have two photos this week, one new and one old. The top shot was taken on a late October morning as we headed out of town on a road trip. The fog-softened silhouettes and the spotlight effect of the sun brought an air of mystery to the drive. The second photo was taken in a cypress swamp in 2011 at the site of the Battle of Jenkins Ferry.  The original post is here: https://suburbanferndaleark.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/battle-of-jenkins-ferry/.  The shadows and reflections — one in particular — looked like the ghostly image of a man standing with his hands in his pockets.

GHOSTS — After downloading this image of the Saline River, something remarkable showed on the screen that didn’t show in the viewfinder. In the middle left, there appears the image of a man standing at ease, with his hands in his pockets. With a little more imagination, reflections of the other cypresses in the water could be ghosts of armies past.

    1. Thanks! It was quite a shock to see it on screen after downloading. I have other shots from the same session – one that seems to have many similar men standing around. Not one to believe in ghosts, but boy, that was quite a sight.
