Since the beginning of recorded history, people have been reporting run-ins with ghostly apparitions all over the world. Castles, cemeteries, even brand new manufactured homes play host to phantoms, so seems that these spirits aren’t specific about where they can and can’t manifest.
Further proving the fickle nature of ghosts is a strange series of photos snapped during a family get-together in Redington Beach, Florida which show a mysterious figure emerging from the ocean before disappearing into thin air.
The images show a couple posing on the beach for a typical vacation snapshot in front of a beautiful sunset, with a few “practice images” taken in order to make sure the iPhone’s lowlight adjustments were perfect. However, when the couple were flipping through their images later that night, they discovered that something strange had appeared in their photos.
The series of photos, snapped back-to-back over the course of one minute, show the sunset, a dock, the tide coming in and out, and a ghostly figure emerging from the ocean.
Clearly pictured in the center of the first two images is what looks like a humanoid figure rising from the water and walking towards the shore. According to the couple, aside from their family, there was absolutely no one else with them on the beach, let alone a strange man climbing out of the ocean.
After discovering the strange manifestation in the images, the group looked up and down the beach, and found that no one had been present anywhere near where the images were taken.
When the couple returned home, they posted the series of images online asking for help identifying exactly what they managed to capture on film. If they’re telling the truth about an empty beach, they may have photographed one of the eeriest ghostly manifestations we’ve seen.
Strangely enough, the figure also bears a striking resemblance to a Bigfoot in his famous pose, which isn’t that far fetched if you believe the theory that Sasquatch travel underwater in order to avoid leaving behind those pesky footprints researchers love to find and cast. Of course, we already know the truth: Bigfoot is a ghost.
