It must be some obscure law of the universe that ghosts appear in photographs when you least expect them to.
They just seem to love photobombing us humans and scaring us half to death. Sometimes they’re pretty obvious about it, and others, they make us work to see them. Take, for example, the case of Redditor SlicedUpBeef and the photos she took at Dundas Peak in Hamilton, Ontario.
The story starts with SlicedUpBeef’s friend’s cousin. Apparently, he’d hiked to the peak a few days before and posted the following picture of himself on Instagram.
When the Redditor got there, she and her friends each took turns recreating her cousin’s photograph.
However, even though the location was the same, there was something that they didn’t manage to recreate.
Here’s the original Instagram photo again. Notice anything weird in the background that’s not in the background of the other two images?
See it now?
It appears to be some sort of unnaturally tall, ghostly figure. According to SlicedUpBeef, they thought it could have been a hiker, except that the area is not part of the trail and it’s so steep that’d be almost impossible to traverse.
For the sake of comparison, here is the same area during a different time of year. People aren’t kidding when they say it’s steep.
I could understand if this went down in a haunted house, but seeing a ghost out in nature like that is beyond freaky.
