DUBLIN, Ireland, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- An Irish photographer says he captured the image of legendary ghost the Grey Lady at a Game of Thrones filming location, just in time for Halloween.

Gordon Watson of Ballycastle said he took a series of pictures at the Dark Hedges near Armoy, a location used to film scenes for HBO's popular fantasy drama, and he was surprised when he looked at the photos on his computer and spotted the image of what he believes to be a ghost.


Local legend holds the Grey Lady haunts the Dark Hedges and has been seen gliding along the road and vanishing behind trees. Some stories say she was a woman who died centuries ago of mysterious causes at a nearby home and others say she is a restless spirit from a lost graveyard in nearby fields.

Photographer Kevin McAuley said he examined the picture and determined it has not been digitally altered.

"It looks like a dress going towards the shape of a figure and it's at this end of the trees where the Grey Lady has been seen by a variety of people over the years," McAuley told the Ballymoney and Moyle Times.
