Obviously, great darkness is not great for picture taking, but I tried anyway. I put the ISO way way up there and the shutter speed really slow (1/10 sec) and hoped for the best. I couldn't really focus either. I set everything to manual and did my best.
I was somewhat surprised to have salvaged as much as I did.
These first three photos show Linda, our fearless and peerless host. The next two show some of the group around her, listening in rapt attention.
Another group shot. ↓
A few scenes. ↓
You've heard of water twitching or witching? Well, our one host was also a grave twitcher. There are some unmarked graves, and she found them by using two copper rods. When they crossed, it indicated a male down below, and when they separated apart, it indicated a female.
A few others tried their hands but they just didn't possess the magic.
We ended up by the little crypt-like building for light refreshments.
Inside the structure, the ghostly table was set. The racks, faintly visible at the back, were for storing caskets when the ground froze in winter.
It was a fun night. Thanks to Linda and the other helpers.
