This would have probably been better to post around October and November when the creepy holidays occur around the world, like Halloween and the splendid Day of the Dead, but here I am searching for creepy photos in my archives today. It wasn’t an easy task.

I love trees. I think there is a magical beauty than comes from trees. They are full of life even though they are stationary. They come in so many different shapes, sizes and colors.
