Monochrome Weekly: Spooky

Lost

Here there be ghosts.

*P.S. At the base of the tree is the "head" of the snakelike vines, shown in the next post down: Scary

There must definitely be ghosts there. What a spooky scene!

Where is this? This is sooooo cool. It has a life of its own.

Paula, it is in the woods behind our pond. We don't often venture back that far.

Carletta said...

A great shot!

Hey Harriet said...

This is very cool! I like how you said to Paula that you don't often venture back that far. I wouldn't either! I'm glad you were brave enough to capture these spooky scenes to share with us :)

Looks like a sinuous dance. Great find.

Pacey said...

This is creepy...don't wanna think of snakes lurking from those branches. :) Great mono.

Nina said...

Wow, what a dramatic shot! Thank you for your kind words at my blog!

Carolyn Ford said...

The drama that would occur if you got too close! That is an awesome capture...and, you were brave enough to go get it! Impressive!

Both of these shots gave me wonderful Halloween shivers. If I were you, I'd keep one eye open for the Headless Horseman when going out late at night.

Thanks, everyone! It's interesting to hear your reactions to these. There really are some parts of the woods that seem friendlier than others. This is not the friendly part.

Elisabeth said...

Super shot! Excellent!

Daryl said...

Fun ... there's a tree like that in our 'communal' back yard

kden said...

Very cool, it looks like snakes crawling through the trees.

Reminds me of Sleepy Hollow!

As that you are into photography, I thought that you may be interested in a monthly blog posting that I started in July called "5 on the fifth" where you take 5 random photographs on the fifth of the month and post them to your own blog and then post a comment on MY blog with your name, location and link to your site - I then update my blog entry so the world has your link.

Interested?

Here's a link to my blog
