My dear Jon,
Here’s one. It IS genuine but a little weird to say the least. Take a look at the attached photograph. I took this on board a ship in Norway heading north for Trondheim. We sailed past a rather curious building and I thought I would photograph it just as the sun was going down, as did several other passengers. They had just photographed it, and I was last to arrive just in time to get a quick snap before we passed the building.
Just as I was about to press the shutter a beam of golden sunlight lit up the structure – nothing else, just that! Naturally I took the shot but when I looked again there was a strange golden ball to the left of the picture. Neither my pal nor anyone else around me had the same impression and I had this on the two shots I took. There was nothing wrong with the camera.
How curious that this shard of sunlight hit at the moment I took the shot and the golden ball, made up of several smaller balls appeared like some mass ball of energy hurtling through the air on my photograph.
It could be a glitch with my camera (doubtful) or I may have been lucky enough to have photographed something extraordinary – a ball of energy or something else emanating from the last but sudden warm rays of the sun in sub zero temperatures.
I don’t have the answer but I hope you find it interesting. The photograph is not doctored in any way.
