Ghostly Spectre in County Kerry?

November is a time when we remember our dead. On a trip to county Kerry I stopped off at an old graveyard. I stuck my camera lens through the opening in the tomb and took the above picture. Granted it was raining and the spots in the picture may be simply raindrops but a physic who saw the picture claimed they were orbs and two people could be seen looking out from inside the tomb.
