(PCM) A tourist from Houston, Texas named Henry Yau was taking photographs at the infamous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado when he was shocked to discover that his image of the staircase in the hotel lobby featured more than just the hotel decor. Yau captured what appears to be the ghostly apparition of a woman dressed in black standing at the top of the stairwell.
For those that are unaware, the Stanley Hotel is what inspired author Stephen King to write his famous book “The Shining”, although in both the book and the film adaption, the name of the Stanley Hotel was changed to The Overlook Hotel. The hotel has fascinated suspense and horror fans for decades and is certainly a prime tourist destination for those visiting the region.
Yau stands by his claim that there were no humans present when he was taking the image and it has also been reviewed by several paranormal experts who claim that feel it was definitely not photoshopped and does indeed feature some sort of paranormal entity.
What do you think? Did Yau capture a ghost or is it just a trick of the eye?
