Angel and demon appear in photograph
The photograph was taken September 27, 2014 on LaCloche Lake southwest of Sudbury.
It features three white boulders, reflected perfectly in the calm waters of the lake.
The reflection of the white rock formed the image of angel.
Laplante's wife, Irene was said the angel is "perfect."
"She's got a star on her head. Her face is there. You see the eyes, you see the nose, you see the mouth, the wings," she said.
Even more surprising was the image that appeared when Marc Laplante accidentally flipped the photograph upside down.
"That's when my life really changed," Laplante said. "That's when the entity popped right out. I did more than tingle. I just shivered."
"It just freaked me right out," said Irene Laplante. "I can't believe this is all in one shot. How did that happen?"
The photograph has been shared hundreds of times, and wound up in the hands of Karen Osborne, a crystal shamanic practitioner who lives near Ottawa, Ont.
Osborne found the image remarkable, but not surprising because she said she works with entities in her healing practice every day.
"There are demons and angels and some have just lost their way. We live in a world of polarity. So we have darkness and light," said Osborne. "When they lose their way they can cause some harm."
Osborne believes the angel in the photograph "positioned itself solidly on top of this being, to keep it bound where it is so it can't do harm."
She decided she would "cleanse" the dark spirit in the photograph, "so I went in and connected with it, standing in light and I spoke with it and...after a while it understood and it released whatever attachment it had with that place."

Marc Laplante says the photograph has made him look at life differently. "Maybe there's more to life, more than what we says there must be," he said. "I honestly believe that there is a great power, and it's there. It's here."
The Laplantes have found more images in the reflections of other photos they took that day including a Tibetan Buddha, a skeleton and a totem pole.
"There's something about that lake," said Irene Laplante who added, "the universe is so big, there's a lot we don't know. I think it just confirms a lot for me."
