"Aaah, experienced travellers of yon Haunted Wood never set foot upon that accursed path without the magical talisman of a Wilkinson Sword Quattro and a tin of shaving foam at hand, to brandish at the Ghost Beard when it do come searching for its long-lost chin...."

When you click the photo, you can enlarge it further by holding down the control button and clicking the plus sign key over and over...

To reveal the singularly most puzzling picture I've seen! And I used to leaf through a book from the library of 'real' ghosts caught on camera as a teen. Nothing there was as good as Ghost Beard.

You were clearly a Scotsman in a previous life and that's what we're glimpsing here. Um, a Scotsman who lost his feet in a terrible accident (why are you also levitating?!).

After all the lurking I did on the other thread (still am, actually) I couldn't be more impressed by this. Unless a ghostly sporran can also be seen on your kilt skirt...

Look, I suppose the beard (which looks little like a curl/back to front 'c' when enlarged) could have been a speck of dust on the lens serendipitously appearing to look like whiskers. Beautiful, red, whiskers (could it have been a fibre on the lens from the lovely red tweed jacket?)

But. BUT. Dust and fibres disnae make it look like you're a hovercraft. No, ma'am, can't fathom anything logical for that at the mo!

(and I don't really buy the fibre on the lens, tbh. It's possible, but not likely... I mean, the effect looks too bushy. But to play devil's advocate I had to offer it up as a possibility)

Tis clearly the long lost, disembodied beard of Captain Redbeard Rum

Am crying tears of laughter now.
Not rusty fibre on lens, it was my friend's camera and she wasn't wearing my jacket at any point. It was quite a magical place, walking down through the woods at the side of a huge waterfall. What disturbs me the most (aside from the feet !) is that my whole face looks like someone else. This is more noticable when I look at the real photo through a magnifying loop. As the pic here is a photo of the photo it is less distinct.

I love the 'lost beard' story, Quaffle.

Poor helly, being attacked - or should I say, attached - by a 'lost beard' - just for a photo!

Brilliant grin

That is an amazing photo.

Anyone notice the two face in the trees to the right ?

Ummmm ..... no, not really! Well, I can see one just to the right of the tree trunk which looks like two eyes and a round mouth, presumably where the sun is shining through a gap in the leaves - but I can see a second one.

But I can't see a second one!
