#12006 Spook Hollow
This cemetery view had a special digital process applied to it in order to fit the title better and I was trying to go from just “spooky-looking” to “spookier”. That digital twist-up turned the snow to gray and heavily contrasted the tree limbs with a strange light, both of which added to the weirdness. I most often don't use any processing this heavy handed, but this one called for it and I'm glad it worked out well. It's unusual yet beautiful, weird and wonderful.
This is the companion to another image in the catalog, Exit Only, #10146. The two images were created in sequence on the same overcast winter day in early March about fifteen steps apart, and the cemetery lies about ten blocks from the house in my Pennsylvania hometown.
