I didn't want my photo to be overtly ghoulish I wanted to take a more subtle approach. I think our imaginations can conjure up more frighting things then what are really there. My photo doesn't have any vampires or ghost but if you were alone in these woods and night was falling you might be kind of freaked out. For those of you that want something a bit scarier, I created another one that includes Slender Man.
I used only my own photos in this Instructable, the original image is taken on Cortes Island in British Columbia (there was a deer that I was trying to take a picture of but it got away). The crow I drew in Sketchbook Pro and the photo with the prayer flags I took at a meditation retreat Centre near Whistler.
