Where are you most likely to see a ghost? In a graveyard, of course.
But not many graveyards have ghosts riding horses.
Yet try telling that to amateur photographer Richard Durham, who captured a spectre on horseback in a snap he took at Weedon Bec cemetery in Daventry, Northamptonshire on New Year’s Day.
The 45-year-old gardener from nearby Boothville was testing out his new camera at about 9am when he took the picture of what appears to be a ghostly figure on top of a ghostly steed among some headstones.
But it wasn’t until the father-of-three posted the image on Facebook that he found out about its frightening content.
A friend saw the image and pointed out the ghost rider to Mr Durham, who couldn’t believe he’d missed it first time around.
“I do believe in ghosts but never thought I would ever capture one on camera,” he said.
“All I was doing was trying to get a few nice weather shots on a frosty and misty morning. It is quite an old village so probably has a few stories to tell.
“Locals have been telling me the pub down the road is haunted by a horseman.
“Apparently he used to walk there from the main church though the graveyard and up along the canal.
“So maybe this is him.”
