Ivy Engulfs the Manor As Ghostly Images Peak Out by 

Top Ten, 4th place, in Windows or Doors covered in Ivy Challenge, 2-Mar-2014

This photo is of Skylands Manor. One whole side of the Manor in the summer is covered with vegetation except for the windows, which peak out from the greenery. The manor is very old, so the windows are beveled glass, and as you can see, reflections create a ghostly white misty look – as if ghosts indeed are looking out at you as you take the photo. I loved the way this photo turned out very atmospheric. Skylands Manor is one of my favorite places to go to get photos and just stroll through the grounds and gardens.

My guess is that Skyands Manor probably does have some resident ghosts anyway….

    Perfect clarity and lighting and plenty of atmosphere as well as lots of luscious green! I would love to stay in a place like this! Hopefully I would not get into any territorial disputes with the ghosts! A favourite for sure.

  • thanks Blue Moon Rose – can’t believe you left this great message over a year ago and I never saw it! I apologize for sure. this house is available for tours and I would love to go again. unfortunately no photos allowed inside, but you can even rent a room for overnight stay – which I am thinking of doing in the warmer weather.
