Thursday’s Special: Vision

Here is my Vision of time passed… The Ghosts of Tyneham

I make no apologies for the fact that these images were first posted 3 years ago.

Empty Rooms?

See more Vision at Paula’s here.


  1. That blur works so well. Suitably spooky!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I’m still scared! 🙂 🙂

  3. I want to learn more about this. Working with death and dying almost all of my nursing career, I have had a number of “unusual” experiences, including recently after my mother died.

      The story behind this is very simple, I’m afraid, Victoria. I have long had a fascination with ruins, and there are places where I have felt a palpable presence of former inhabitants. But not here, as it happens. But this seemed an ideal place for me to create images suggestive of former occupants when I used a 10 stop ND filter to allow me to use a very slow shutter speed…..

  4. Aha–you trickster, clever lady. Very cool effect.

  5. I haven’t seen them before, but I have a similar one somewhere, don’t ask me where.

  6. I love these mysterious compositions, Sue. The first one is actually rather sinister – the more you study it. Excellent bit of spine tingling 🙂

      It was a most interesting exercise….one I would like to try and repeat but as I’m less fit these days, it might prove too tricky

  7. Very purposeful ghosts in the first one. More trickery please!

  8. Wonderfully spooky; I love these.

  10. And you shouldn’t apologize. In fact I expect you to repost your older stuff, Sue, cause I did not know you back then. Ghostly visions leaving empty rooms – this is a brilliant interpretation. Thank you 🙂

  11. This is such an extraordinary place, must be 10 years since I was here.

    And I have discovered it was Cumbria that village (hamlet) under the reservoir – which means it must have been Mardale. I have found a news report on it, so will send a link in reply to your email which brought me here 🙂

  12. Oh Sue, I really the camera effect you got of the tourists. It really show ghosts and passage of time. Excellent. Thanks for sharing it with me.
