A woman was taking photographs in the woods with her cousin and after she reviewed the images, she noticed something strange in one of the photos with her. The eerie figure is believed to be the ghost of a female spirit known as the Black Lady that supposedly haunts the area, the Grimsby Telegraph reported earlier this month.

Kirsty Ritchie was taking modeling photos with her cousin Nicole Nelson at a wooded area in Bradley Woods and Dixon Woods, located in the village of Bradley, Lincolnshire, England. After reviewing the images, the 21-year-old noticed a strange figure in some of the photos.

"I was just messing about with my cousin, which we do quite often, just taking pictures of her and having fun really. I didn't notice anything until I got home, but when I was looking through my pictures I noticed five or six of them had this shadow in the background. I don't know how else to explain it really, but I've no idea what they are," Ritchie said about the images.

The location that Ritchie visited is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of a woman. Witnesses that have seen the ghost say that she is often spotted wearing a black cloak and hood. Some people believe that she was once a nun.

"Nicole does a lot of modelling and I often like to do her pictures. I used to study photography during my art and design course at college, but I've never had anything like this happen before. My dad saw the pictures and thought they looked pretty spooky. But the woods are quite mysterious, aren't they? You hear a lot about the Black Lady and things like that," Ritchie said.

Ritchie says that she doesn't even believe in ghosts but she has no explanation what could have caused the anomaly in the photo. A lot of folks believe it is proof of the Black Lady of Bradley Woods.
