Give Up the Ghost

Do you dare watch this haunted cemetery animation?

Beware: a mysterious mist casts a chilling spell.

"The farther we've gotten from the magic and mystery of our past, the more we've come to need Halloween." -- Paula Guran

What could be more haunting than a cemetery with bats flying overhead to tell the story of Halloween?

Though we don't discuss it openly, death is one of our oldest human curiosities. And while we might be curious about the macabre, we prefer things to make sense to us. Halloween gives us some control over exposing ourselves to what seems scary. On Halloween, we know there will be frights. But we can manage through them. It is a lot of fun, just like this video.
To create this photo, I layered multiple images of a Vulture City Ghost Mine's pioneer cemetery together to get a ghostly effect of a graveyard.

If you desire eerie elegance, the photo inspiring this animated cemetery video is available as a print in the "Abstract Digital Art" gallery.
