My name is Michael Reed. I am submitting two photos to you which were taken in Sounion, Greece on 1/3/2006. My girlfriend and I had taken a trip to Greece to visit her family.
I was the person who took these photos and the only person within the area. My girlfriend was visiting the Temple of Posiedon which is shown in the second pic (All_Photos_237.jpg) and I was alone on a hill which was lower as you can see by the angle of my photos. I was bored so I decided to snap a pic of the coastline and the temple. It was a dry evening but chilly on the water since it was early January. I switched on the night vision mode to capture the beautiful coastline. I did not notice until I was back in the US that I had captured a figure (All_Photos_239.jpg). If you zoom in on it, it is clearly a figure of a person. The hair is detailed so clearly and the figure is transparent. Also, the shape represents a person. If you zoom in, the figure is completely transparent and seems to be leaned forward on the ground praying or something. I have no idea where the smoke/fog came from because it was not there when I took the pic. I had someone tell me that this happens when a person steps in to the photo when it shudders but I assure you, I was the only person on the hill at that moment. Also, who wears a old school robe or cloak like that around town? For more information on the location, please follow this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sounion
I also noticed that the fog or smoke coming from the figure has another faint image all the way to the left.
