I took this photo at this 17th Century “Church” Tower to get a silhouette shot , then discovered this “Yellowish Object” on my photo ? can anyone enlighten me as to what it is , ie sun reflection , or something similer ,or is it something more “sinister” it only “appeared” on this photo , despite taking several photos , I did not have any polorising filter on , so its a bit of a mystery..I have kept the original SD card with the photos on , just in case this becomes important , this would then remove any thoughts of photo manipulation…

    U.F.O!!!!! Maybe not :D
    I’ve not the technical nous to say anthing more than maybe it’s a flare! But I’m riveted to find out what it is too! Nice shot by the way, love that sky.

  • Thanks Akkra , I would like to know more….

    This is a great shot notice the shape of angel wings or eagle wings in the sky and just on the wings is a small orb of light…..If you can rule out a finger accidentley covering your lense….i WOULD GUESS YOU HAVE A GREAT PARANORMAL shot here please enter it into the paranorm group for more feed back and recognition well done!

  • Thanks Marie , definately no fingers near lens , will enter into Paranormal Group

    MY SON HAS JUST CHECKED THIS OUT Alex and he is pretty hard to convince at best of times even though he is very spiritual, he is also an artist and photographer and he thinks this is pretty cosher and the way on further investigation there is a small face in the golden bell shape..I bet there is a graveyard near by?

  • Yes after this I went into graveyard , this tower is all that is left of the original church , totally abandoned area , plenty of graves

  • I have kept the original shot on my SD card just to show its an original photograph, the SD card is somewher very safe , just in case it is needed
