Evil horseman from Lord of the Rings captured on camera

A couple were stunned when they took this photograph of a waterfall – and captured a chilling apparition of an evil horseman from the Lord of the Rings.

Stephen and Sue Barringer, 55 and 51, were on a walking holiday in the Yorkshire Dales when they took a picture of a beautiful waterfall.

But when they later watched a slideshow of the images they were shocked to see a dark, cloaked figure staring out at them.

The cascading water had formed the shape of a ghoulish man – who looked identical to one of the nine ringwraiths, or Nazgul, in the Lord of the Rings.

Mum-of-three Sue, from Ramsey, near Huntingdon, Cambs., said: ”We didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary when we were at the waterfall and we even sat there for a cup of coffee.

”But when we got home and saw the dark figure of a hooded man we were just astonished.

”There were no rocks there so we think the shape must have been made entirely from falling water.

”The figure just leaps out at you and it is very spooky. I’m sure it isn’t a ghost or anything like that, but it does seem very supernatural.”

Lorry driver Steve and teaching assistant Sue took the shot on August 12 near the Ingleton waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales.

They discovered the Nazgul the following week after watching a slideshow of holiday snaps on their computer.

The Nazguls, also known as Ringwraiths, were nine Men who succumbed to evil lord Sauron’s power and were granted near-immortality.

They are first mentioned in The Lord of the Rings, originally published in 1954. The book calls the Nazgul Sauron’s ”most terrible servants”.

    How can they say there were no rocks, when the water is falling over & around a rock?
