Can someone tell me what is causing the splotch in this photo? It;s like a pinkish color right in the middle. The day was cloudy. Sun wasn't out. This is only seen in two of the pictures that I have.

Do you think it has something to do with the lens, or do you think it's spirits (LOL)?

I have a Nikon Coolpix S8000 14.2MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Zoom.


It is lens flare.

Many more examples as well as how to avoid lens flare, and why you might even desire lens flare can be found under the lens-flare tag, here: https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/lens-flare
