Photo Essay: Haunting Travel Shots

There is nothing like old, haunting castles to send chills down your spine. This is the basement of Tattershall Castle in Lincolnshire, England. The drafty, shadowy room used to be the servants quarters.

I captured this spooky shot at Speke Hall in Liverpool – a Tudor house which is thought to be haunted. Unfortunately, or actually fortunately, the shadowy figure was not a ghost. She was one of the tour guides dressed in period clothing.

Lincoln Cathedral is brimming with gothic character, providing the perfect setting for the city’s famous ghost walk – a large part of which takes place within the cathedral’s spooky grounds.

When it is sunny, the Beach at Port Erin in the Isle of Man is bright and shiny. Last time I visited, it was like being in a different place. The blue sky was filled with moody grey clouds and the sand was darkened by the relentless rain. Waves crashed tumultrously against the cliffs and the wind whistled making for an altogether haunting atmosphere. The cliff top tower of Bradda Head was lurking darkly in the background the whole time.

    Those are actually color shots right? Not with the black n white filter on the camera turned on?

    Hi Andrew, yes they’re colour shots changed to black and white. Haven’t got a filter on my camera though, just took them with my android.
