In Stranocum, Ireland, a spirit known as the gray lady reportedly roams a historic road known as Dark Hedges. Earlier this month, photographer Gordon Watson claimed he caught the lady on camera. What do you think of the image?
No one’s quite sure who the Gray Lady is, though theories abound. Some say she comes from a long-forgotten cemetery nearby. Others believe she was a servant who died mysteriously.
Whoever the gray lady is, local photographer Kevin McAuley is certain she appears in the photo above. McAuley examined the image for authenticity.
“It looks like a dress going towards the shape of a figure and it’s at this end of the trees where the Gray Lady has been seen by a variety of people over the years,” McAuley told the Ballymoney Times. “This is the only known version ever to have been recorded in any fashion.”
Lined by ancient beech trees, Dark Hedges is among Ireland’s most photographed landscapes and appears in HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones.
