13 Days of Halloween: 1 {Halloween Bog Walk}


After stumbling across this mysterious spooky story at work last night, I was compelled to take a walk through the late-autumn woods today. The book is full of wonderful old fashioned black and white photography. With my camera in tow, the kids, my parents and I went through the "quaking bog" nearby. My idea was to take some black and white pictures of trees that had lost their leaves. That would not be the case today. What we found in the bog were gorgeous tamarak trees who's needles had all turned pumpkin orange for an amazing display on this All Hallow's Eve day!



From spongy earth underfoot to the carnivorous pitcher plants (below), the bog was compelling enough to capture ones imagination. On the day that is rumored to have the thinest veil between the living in the dead, I felt like I was on another world.


Happy Halloween!
