This is a photo taken while working on a man lift, painting a retaining wall on the interstate in Chattanooga, Tn. It was a beautiful picture of the morning sky. But a few days later while admiring the picture again, we both noticed something very unusual. In the middle of the picture you'll notice a strange image similar to a black wilting rose in the darker area of the sky clouds. We have tried to find an explanation for the seemingly mysterious image, but we simply can not. Nothing we can rationally imagine seems to explain its odd presence.
