From the person that sent it in:
Please find attached a photograph that I took at Tantallon castle on May 26th 2008, which I feel you may be interested in. The photo was taken in the central keep around 1500 hours. At the time I was not aware of anyone, or any thing being present in my picture only noticing the anomaly on examining the digitial photograph when I got home. I have not scrubbed the CF card, so the originial is still available for examination.
I have been in touch with the staff at Tantallon and have verified that there were no sinister dummies in period costume, placed strategically in windows for our amusement, or historical re-enactments going on that day at the castle. Similarly I did not notice any nice old ladies wearing ruffs walking around the central stair wells! These are a couple of conclusions, as well as “its just light reflecting on rocks”, that some people have made about the photo. One person suggested it may be King James V of Scotland who lived at the castle as the figure looks like his portrait? Irrespective of these observations I hope you agree that it is a fascinating picture.
Apart from the photograph being enlarged it is not the product of adobe photo shop, which I have absolutely no idea how to use, or any other computer art program for that matter. What ever you conclude from the photograph I would be very interested to hear what you think.
