15 Eerie Shots In North Carolina That Are Spine-Tingling Yet Magical
One of my favorite things about photography is that it freezes a moment in time. The atmosphere, weather, emotion, environment. That’s why some images convey a certain affect, that like stated in the title, are spine-tingling yet magical. With North Carolina being such a beautiful landscape to work off of, on the right day, with the right weather, or perhaps in the right location…the magic does happen. Just take for example these fifteen photos below.
1. Dark and dreary raindrops
'Raindrops at Jeffress Park' was captured by Lindley Ashline on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
2. Haunting cemetery
'As far as the eye can see' was captured by Sarah in the Old Salem Cemetery in Winston-Salem.
3. You should probably exit now
This beautiful but dark image was captured by Mike Bitzenhofer at an abandoned factory in Raleigh.
4. Suspicious trail
Holga : Trail was captured by Aaron Alexander in Thurmond.
5. Hole in the grave
Photographer Zach Frailey discovered this Old Burying Ground, Deeded in 1731. With plenty of interesting stories to go along. Read more here https://www.flickr.com/photos/zrfraileyphotography/6291352285/in/
6. "A Red Play of Light"
The sunset casts an eerie, almost evil sheen on something as simple as this wheel barrel. This image was captured by Joe Giordano in Boone.
7. Blurred Blue Ridge
Beautiful, yet still haunting, this image was captured by Jim Surkamp.
8. Sad angel
This image was captured at Riverside Cemetery by Amber Davis.
9. Forgotten things
"Stay A While" was captured by Brandon Fick during a morning walk. The things you might find in the woods!
10. "Blackbirds at Dusk"
This magical, yet dark picture was captured outside of Asheville.
11. Moody skies over the State Fair
"State Fair" was captured by Melanie Chiavatti.
12. "Foggy Goggles"
Photographer Zach Frailey captured this image in Kinston.
13. "What Lies Beyond?"
Another image by the very talented Zach Frailey. This picture is of Tryon Palace.
14. Lights in the sky?
Read all about the "Quest for Camelopardalis" at John Flannery's Flickr page.
15. "Operation Toy Drop"
The intentions of this photo by Fort Bragg are great, paratroopers dropping toys for children in need, there is still just something strange about the photo.
