The church of St Digains is famous for a mysterious act, that of "Angelystor" or the "recording angel". Here is a writing from the Rev Elias Owen written in 1896 "This then may be what attracted the presence of the mysterious "Angelystor". Angelystor - the Recording Angel - manifested itself in the church every Hallowe'en. Here, at dead of night, it would intone in a deep and solemn voice the names of all those in the parish who were to die in the following year. One fateful Hallowe-en night, after a few too many pints, the village tailor, a know-all named Shôn ap Robert, laughingly derided the existence of the Recording Angel. Spurred on by his drinking pals, he barged out of the Stag hotel into the night and made his wobbly way to the church, to prove Angelystor a myth. But when he arrived at the door he heard to his horror a deep voice booming from within. It was reciting names. And the first name he heard was - "Shôn ap Robert"! "Hold, hold!" he cried. "I am not ready yet!" But, ready or not, he found his grave in Llangernyw churchyard that coming year."

Nice subject. The halo was a bit too conspicuous and the lighting a bit strange.

Creepy story. The frame and the process are very well pity the halos and the cloud burned.

There are some defects in your photo (halo and white burned). Restart without it and the picture is perfect ;)
