This is the eerie image of what a great-great gran believes is the ghost of a boy she captured on her iPhone 3.
Elaine Stewart was left spooked when she saw what she believes is the spooky outline of a young child from the 18th century as she walked through a beauty spot in the Black Country.
The 65-year-old only noticed the boy leaning against a tree when she returned home from her walk in Wasson Pool in the West Midlands.
Retired auxiliary nurse Elaine, from West Bromwich, has researched the area and discovered the woodland is on the site of an 18th century coal mine.
She said: “I love walking in those woods, it is so peaceful but one afternoon the mist was down and I took a picture on my phone.
"It was very atmospheric. I didn’t think too much about it until I got home and was scrolling through my pictures when I suddenly saw a child standing by the tree.
"He looked like he was wearing old fashioned clothes. I searched on the internet and discovered there are old mine shafts under the wood dating back to the 18th century.
"There were lots of disasters with tunnel collapses and children would often be sent down the mines so it’s possible it’s a restless spirit of one of the victims.”
Convinced that the picture is proof of the afterlife, Elaine added: "I’m usually very sceptical about this sort of thing but now I’ve actually seen the evidence on my phone for myself I’m not so sure.”
