Halloween 2012 in Inverness Scotland.

>Yesterday was Halloween so its surprising that this morning I already have images on Dreamstime.
It came about because Highland Council arranged entertainment on Ness Islands for the evenings on Friday and Saturday 26th and 27th October. This was a brave decision because at this time of year, the islands situated in the middle of the River Ness can be flooded and / or underwater. The illuminated islands are reached by a bridge across the river and have many large trees. The tradition of Halloween goes back to the Pagan holiday of Samhain. This was replaced by All Saints Day also known as the Day of the dead.
Many Wiccans and modern Pagans celebrate the day of the dead. It is the day the souls of dead people come back to Earth.
Here are a few of the images I took using my Nikon D700 with off camera...

Wow, you have a lot of zombies there! It looks like you (and the costumed ones) had a lot of fun. I love Halloween. I hope these sell for you. :) Best wishes!

Children mostly realize it is fun pretending to be witches on broomsticks and that the sword doesn't really penetrate the heart and the blood is really red dye ! Children come in costume and enjoy taking part.
Sooner or later we all have to face the realities of life and death. Children's fairy stories tell of witches and horrors so there is no hiding place ! David
