Halloween is approaching in a couple of weeks, and one of the common themes associated with Halloween is a feeling of spookiness or even fear. This plays perfectly with the season, because the dead leaves line the streets while twisted branches are now visible instead of foliage. Combined with fog and gray skies, this creates the perfect environment for spooky and creepy photography.

In this post, I’ve gathered up 25 spooky photographs for Halloween. From dark and scary forests to seemingly haunted mansions, evil clowns and creepy monsters, these photographs will send a chill up your spine.
