Every now and then, something comes our way that leaves us scratching our heads in uncertainty. We examine it and talk about it and examine it some more, searching for valid possibilities to explain the situation. Most times, we are able to find the answers; other times, we’re not – and it’s those other times that brings us here now.
This past weekend, Holly’s husband was out hiking in the Kananaskis area. One of the places he visited was a man-made stream just off the highway. The photographs below were taken in sequence with a Nikon Coolpix 20.1 megapixels digital camera. There was a 2-3 second delay between each picture. The area in question has been circled to make it easier to identify the reason we are sharing these photos.
During the examination, Noelle caught something opposite the circled areas. The same substance was present in the first two images, but not in the third – as shown below:
While we haven’t found a logical explanation for these anomalies, we are not suggesting they are paranormal. We have been able to rule out lens flare, reflection, dust, scratches or cracks inside the lenses, and fingerprints and/or other oil-based objects on the outside of the lens. According to Holly’s husband, these anomalies were not visible to the naked eye at the time the photographs were taken.
What are your thoughts? Can you explain these markings? We’d love to hear from you!
