Photo Hunt #13: Scary


IMG_0108, originally uploaded by airam94564.

There was a time in my life when dead trees/naked trees were simply scary, particularly when silhouetted by the moonlight. It could also be just a product of my over active imagination. I do blame all those horror movies though.

Before I thought they were scary; now I find them beautiful and full of character and personality.

  1. That is such a beautiful photo! You're right, they are so often used to create an eerie atmosphere when really, they are quite lovely.

    Have a nice weekend!

  5. It is interesting how point of view changes. I also love the beauty of bare trees but they certainly play a part in many scary movies.

  6. Ohhh, I know what you mean. Naked tree limbs can have a frightful effect. But photos like yours also show their simple yet powerful appeal.

  12. I still find them scary but only in the fog. Fog makes everything look kind of eerie. This is a really interesting tree!

  15. Oooh, that is spooky! We see a lot of burnt trees on our way to Yosemite, it makes me sad that so many trees have died (but probably the rangers set certain parts of the forest on fire, on purpose).

  27. That's a great shot. I could imagine a scary image of that tree at night on a full moon.

    I enjoy watching horror films but I have an active imagination too which leaves me more scared afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yep, I find them scary, too. I think trees need leaves to make them look alive. Good shot!

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a great weekend!

  33. Oh my you did find a scary looking tree.

    I love how you snapped the shot...with the tree in silhouette.

    Gives it a very mysterious feel and creepy looking too.

    Great job for scary.

  36. This is a beautiful photo. Since starting to take photos I now look at the world differently as in what would look interesting in a photo. Thank you for visiting my scary election post. I was curious as to what country you originally came from where there is a holiday on election day...Michelle

  45. You are definitely not alone with those thoughts. I too relate leafless trees (plus lightning effect!) with those you see in horror flicks. Have a lovely day!

  46. I totally agree about the character and personality. I love bare trees. This one IS a little scary, however! Perfect for the photo hunt!
