Hanging Tree Ghost of Cromwell Church

Taken in 1976 with a film camera, this famous ghost photo shows a white humanlike form beside an old tree that was once used for hanging convicts.

Does the photo actually reveal a ghost or spirit? Why is the incorporeal figure white?

A Mrs. Ramsay photographed the phantom outside of Cromdale Church in Morayshire, Scotland.

Some speculate that this photo could reveal the ghost of a hanging man.

But without the figure having any details, and without the ability to investigate the site at the time the photograph was taken, there is little that can be done to validate what we see in this classic picture.
