Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past three decades, you know of The Shining, the movie by famed director Stanley Kubrick, which was based on the spine-chilling novel by Stephen King. Movie buffs already know that the film was shot on a soundstage in Britain, but what few of them know is that King actually got the idea for The Shining’s Overlook Hotel from the Stanley Hotel. Many claim that The Stanley Hotel is as haunted as the fictitious Overlook Hotel, and now, one man may have proof of that theory after he shared a Stanley Hotel Ghost photo!

Henry Yau decided to visit the Stanley Hotel after hearing all the rumors of its paranormal activities and shared photos of his visit on his Instagram. One particular photo is getting a lot of attention for it seems to have caught a mysterious figure on the top of the stairs, which apparently wasn’t there when the photo was being taken!

“By golly! I think I may have captured a #ghost at #StanleyHotel. [sic]” Yau captioned the photo. Check it out below and let us know if you think that’s proof of paranormal activity or just our eyes playing tricks on us!

By golly! I think I may have captured a #ghost at #StanleyHotel. #EstesPark
