This is a picture I just took off one side of a dirt
road in the Granville State Forest area. It has a history of a
tragedy which happened at this spot in the road to an 11-year old
boy in 1854 who fell off a wagon and was killed. I stopped my truck,
rolled down the window, and took this shot. I downloaded the picture
to my computer and noticed the "orb" just to the left corner of the
sign next to the Memorial Marker where he was killed. My Wife and I
were just taking a ride in this very remote area. I have a Nikon
4300 Coolpix digital camera, and I set it to "auto mode" when I took
this picture. I always keep my camera lens clean too -- I'm very
fussy about that! So this will be my first encounter with this type
of a phenomenon. What do you think?
