The hotel that inspired the movie "The Shining" appears to have made one guest a participant in its alleged paranormal activities after a figure appeared in a photo he took in the lobby.

According to Fox News, Henry Yau, who lives in Houston, took a picture of the grand stairwell, among other places at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, as any visitor might.

Yau said he used the panoramic feature on his iPhone to capture the stairwell, and when he reviewed it, he saw the image of a person he didn't notice before.

"I had read about it being haunted but little did I imagine I would capture something," Yau, who works at the Children's Museum of Houston, told FoxNews.com.

"I don't like when people are in my shots, so when I took this photo, I had waited until the grand stairwell was cleared of people before taking the pic."

After sharing it publicly, it's created quite a bit of buzz both online and off.



Famous horror author Stephen King created the best-selling horror novel "The Shining" — which was turned into a hit movie starring Jack Nicholson — after he and his wife were the only guests at the Stanley Hotel one snowy winter night.

The Stanley Hotel's own website talks about paranormal activities at the hotel, stating that late owners "F.O. and Flora Stanley … continue to go about the business of running their beloved establishment as though they were still alive."

The Oregonian wrote that it appeared the alleged ghost on the stairwell was wearing period clothing.
 
Amy Bruni, an investigator and historical researcher on SyFy's "Ghost Hunters," said on her Facebook page, however, that the panoramic feature on a smartphone camera can sometimes conjure up "anomalies" that are not there.

"We see 'anomalies' in them all the time because people can hop in and out of the shot without the photo taker even knowing because they're so conscious of keeping the arrow in the right spot as they pan the camera," Bruni wrote.

"Also, many of the 'anomalies' look weird. Because thanks to the panoramic shot, any slight movement makes them distorted or cuts part of them off. Most experienced paranormal folks are rolling their eyes at that pic. But, those pics are fun and people who don't know better love to have that little bit of mystery."
