The best would have been to post over the Halloween weekend to match with the occasion, but hey, I hadn’t yet found a creepy image to submit to Mitch Zeissler’s challenge last week at Imagecraft Bootcamp, which he hosts simultaneously at his and my blog.

I knew that perhaps I could have an archive photo to work on, but I decided to follow Mitch’s advice to go outdoors and find a new image.

Well, during the weekend I visited Schiermonnikoog  island, a municipality, and a national park in the northern Netherlands. Schiermonnikoog is one of the West Frisian Islands in the Wadden sea.  The Wadden sea is on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.

Well, it’s autumn, it was foggy and there was plenty to discover.

To find creepy images wasn’t as easy as I thought, though. The island is 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) long and 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) wide. It’s a car-free island so I discovered it by bike. Of course I shot many images, which I will post later, so now let me share the only creepy image I found.

Look at it first.

It’s a friendly creepy face, isn’t it? But what is it?

It’s a tree that may have fallen due to a storm. Here is the back side of it.

    1. Durk and I cycled around the island and through the forest. He was biking in front of me, of course, as I was shooting some trees behind him, and he saw this creepy tree first. He was happy because I had spent the day talking about that and not finding anything. The quasi smiley face was cute!

    1. You’d love there, Sally. I thought of you while visiting the national park. The birds’ variety is amazing. Lots of birds watchers and photographers were there. The Wadden sea is their home. At low tide one can walk from island to island!! I have selected some photos to post for your challenge later today.


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
