Shadow Shot Sunday

Last Sunday, the first day of our holiday, we visited Chillingham Castle-almost by accident as we had meant to visit the cattle but were in between visiting times. So we stumbled into one of the most haunted castles in Britain. This clip from 'Most Haunted' is most entertaining! Also look here and here if you are interested! I would love to believe in ghosts and keep an open mind. I did not see any though and as far as I can see there were none in my photos! It was quite a creepy castle though with its bloody history and its weird and wonderful collections of skulls, bones and armour. Here is a selection of shadowy shots from our visit.
This is now the tea room! Look at Hey Harriet for more shadowy shots!

Great shots -each one spookier and more shadowy than the last.

Do I hear voices
in the armoury? Are there
ghosts that follow me?

I don't know -- I think you need to study these photos more closely. In those shadows might just be . . . well done! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderfully atmospheric photos, Sarah. So glad you were able to visit and keep an open mind, too.

Mmm. Maybe I should schedule a visit there. Castles are one thing -- haunted castles, quite another!
Take care.

Hey Harriet said...

I think that castle is creepy enough looking as it is, with or without ghosts! Some wonderful photos! Welcome back for your holiday Sarah :)

What a wonderful place! Those shot are shadowed in such a way as it makes the place seem deliciously scary but inviting at the same time--brilliant, Sarah. Looks like you're having a terrific holiday so far! Thanks for taking us along with you :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
