Photo Review – Part Two

The photos that we have on our evidence page are there because they relate to something paranormal, not necessarily paranormal in nature by themselves but a reminder for what occurred on the ghost hunt.

The first photo shows nothing paranormal, it looks like a footprint on a wooden floor. Hopefully, that is what it is.

 

It was our first visit to Nothe Fort, Weymouth in 2012, which was a cold November evening, it was raining heavily. During part of the tech session one of the guests asked spirit to “show us your footprints” which is not what he was meant to ask, he should have asked “can we hear your footsteps” but as the session progressed, this footprint appeared on the floor in front of the group. It was approximately measured, and it turned out to be an adult size 7 footprint.

We have often been asked to explain what an orb is or what we think it is. Which is a manifestation of energy, the first level if you like and the easiest shape that energy can create of its own accord. True light anomalies will self-illuminate, therefore there is no need to use a flash (as this is how dust in the air gets illuminated).

 

This photo could be dismissed as dust, as it looks very similar to a photo of dust. There are a few notable features though. The “orb” or light anomaly is behind something else (a tree branch) which then places the orb in the photo. Photos don’t tell you how far away on object is unless there is a shadow on it, then you know which item is in front. It is outdoors and dust doesn’t often “hang about” outdoors and from the experimentation that Steve has done, it isn’t water (rain), pollen or an insect. So whilst it may not be paranormal it is certainly unexplainable, photographically speaking we don’t have any other photo like it from the 1000s that we have taken.

When it comes to photos, we are very intrigued by mists, because mist or fog only occur when the atmospherics are the right combination (cold air hitting warm air e.g. the respiration coming from your mouth on a cold day). Mist or fog doesn’t generally occur in a wood or under a tree canopy because there isn’t a great difference in the air temperature.

This photo taken in Pluckley Screaming Woods on a relatedly mild evening in April 2012 was unusual because we cannot think of any reason why a mist would form under trees when it wasn’t cold. The chap on the left in the photo was also taking photos, but he had nothing. Steve who took the photo was generally taking random shots, not really looking into the viewfinder so didn’t know that he had taken the photo until reviewing them afterwards. The spot where the photo was taken was a “scheduled stop” and on many occasions the group would hold a séance on this path, with many paranormal occurrences happening on this path.

We finish this roundup of photos with another from Pluckley Screaming Woods taken with an Infrared camera. Infrared (IR) light shines from a camera about 2m (6 feet), which is why we need big infrared illuminators for our indoor ghost hunts. Plus we can use the ceiling and walls to bounce the IR light around to get a more even spread of IR light. Outdoors we don’t have anything to bounce the light around and generally don’t use IR cameras or lights outdoors because the IR light would be absorbed by the trees.

In this photo you can see Steve (in the center) and a few people either side of him (there was a group of about 8 people). The pregnant lady in the background about 20m away from the group (wasn’t part of our group, not only that but we didn’t allow pregnant women on events at that time) shouldn’t be illuminated because the IR that was on the camera would not have reached her. For her to be illuminated it would mean that she would have had to have an IR illuminator herself, which is a strange thing for someone who is pregnant to do. (walk around a wood at night in the dark carrying an IR illuminator & battery pack!) It might have been a real person, but the group didn’t hear or see anyone else that night and walking around the woods in the dark whilst pregnant isn’t a wise thing to do. Whilst it may or may not be paranormal it is definitely unusual just on the technicalities alone.

Bicknor Church and Woods – 2-9-2011

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Scott and Debbie walked and stood alongside the road and within a matter of minutes they were both virtually running back. Apparently they had heard something similar to footfalls along the adjacent lane. According to Scott it sounded like someone jogging. Needless to say there was no-one jogging and there are no houses near here.

As soon as everyone else started to walk away I too felt uneasy and had the unusual urge to look behind me, even though I knew that I would not see anything physical.

Scott and myself heard a noise similar to that of a plastic bottle being dropped on the road and then a few moments later Scott & Graham heard an unusual sound but they likened it to an angry swan.

Walking through the woods was an eerie experience, as these woods aren’t walked very often and the woods themselves seemed to watch us, it was a very strange experience, just walking everyone was on edge and apprehensive.

I stopped at a spot because my EMF metre was pulsating, never going any further than the orange light (which is halfway). Everyone stopped and took some photos, some had orbs, but most didn’t. Then I asked out for the spirit who was affecting the EMF metres (we had three) to make a noise, within a very short amount of time, we all heard a noise, it is hard to say what it sounded like. Then I asked again but for the spirit to make it louder and more or less instantly we all heard another noise and it was definitely louder. This process continued for several minutes of asking spirit to make louder and louder noises, until we heard something right beside us which made everyone jump!

As an experiment I shone the laser grid down the path, I wanted to see whether this could be used outdoors (as it is very successful indoors), whilst I was doing this the EMF metres were still pulsating and Graham was trying to photograph the laser light. Almost instantaneously Graham and I asked if anyone was smoking because the both of us saw a mist formation pass us (from the group behind) and head into the laser lights (which in hindsight was the opposite direction that our cigarette smoke was going). Scott and Laura built up the courage to walk down the path in the same direction that we had seen the mist, and almost immediately they came back, apparently they heard a noise, like footfalls and wanted to return to the relative safety of the rest of the group!

As we continued to ask spirit to make a noise I became aware of a male energy, his name was Jerome and he was wearing modern clothing (1960s) he stood about 5’5” and was roughly 60 years old and sported a bald head and round spectacles. To me he looked like Ghandi. I then asked if he could do something different or make a very loud noise. I saw the tree opposite me shake and then something fell out of the tree right beside everyone, but it made no noise. I tried to shake the tree but it didn’t move. (and like I said earlier, it wasn’t windy)
From here we walked further down the path, this time it didn’t feel quite so bad as before, although I came to an abrupt stop when I heard a growl. I thought it could be an animal but nothing moved in the woods, but it sounded like it was right beside me.

Once again Scott and Laura ventured off into the woods and once again came back in such a short amount of time, in fact the path out from where there had ventured wasn’t a difficult path, but because Scott wanted to get out quick he just bulldozed his way out through trees and branches, which was very amusing to watch. They had to get out of there because they had heard footfalls which according to Scott & Laura sounded human.

Whilst we were talking photos in this area we all noticed that it seemed misty, when our torches were shone upwards it seemed there was a mist above us. During this period many orbs were photographed and I captured a very strange mist on my camera (photo added to ghostly gallery )

Scott suggested that we should go to where he and Laura heard the footfalls, within a matter of minutes after asking spirit to make a noise we all heard similar footfalls and yes it did sound like a person, but it also sounded like someone venturing through a wooded area, however when I investigated and looked behind the very old tree that was blocking our view (the same spot Scott & Laura chose) I was expecting to see a fairly thick wooded area, but to my surprise it was completely open for about 50 yards and when I shone my torch nothing moved (if it were an animal).

I decided that we should do an EVP experiment at this point, as we hadn’t done any all evening. However this was not the right time, as I cannot play the recording because there are so many expletives and laughing, because everybody could not complete this simple exercise without laughing. However as we were playing back the 3 minute recording the EMF metres were once again pulsating as if spirit found it just as funny as we did.

After calming down and I continued to record short clips after asking spirit to make a noise, Graham exclaimed that he had just heard a growl and it sounded more like a person than an animal.

As we were leaving the woods we all took many photos, I however had captured a red orb, which although as far as I know doesn’t mean anything, I have rarely captured a red orb, often they are white (or grey), blue, green and yellow.

This was an amazing ghost hunt, as the level of spirit noises and general spookiness of it all was truly brilliant, we especially liked the footfalls as we know that we were definitely the only people there and we saw no animals.
