Geeks and Gaming
On 8th April 2017
Like much of our world, the woods are full of dark and horrifying mysteries. Plenty of horror stories have been told of the terror that takes place behind the usually thick vegetation, and not all the stories have even had the ability to be told. We ask the age-old question: if a tree falls in the forest and nobody’s around to hear it, does it make a sound? In almost the same way, if something terrifying happens in the forest and we didn’t snap a photo of it, did it really happen?
Luckily, with the use of trail cameras that are put in place to capture wildlife, we have been able to get a glimpse at some of the sinister things that take place when the trees think nobody’s looking. The forest is full of mysterious tales of creatures and urban legends of terrifying killers. Every forest in every area has some sort of horror story to tell, and luckily, we have some photographic evidence of terrifying things that have occurred. Not all of the photographs on the list are ones taken from trail cameras. Others are pictures of terrifying things that have happened throughout history in various forests and other horrifying images that we won’t be able to forget.
If you have any scary pictures you’ve taken in the woods, share them with us after reading this! Let us know which one makes you want to never step foot in the woods again. Here are 14 Most Chilling Images Taken In The Woods.
#1. A Strange Place For The Circus
What could get scarier than a clown spotted in the middle of the forest? Some think that a clown-sighting is scary enough, while others think that there’s nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to these party entertainers. Even if you don’t have a fear of clowns, you have to admit that this picture is pretty terrifying. Why on Earth would a clown in full gear be wandering in the middle of the woods? More importantly, why is it staring right into the trail cam? Trail cameras are most often camouflaged so that they don’t disturb the natural environment or cause distraction to the world around them.
Clearly, this clown had no problem detecting the hidden technology and seems a little concerned that it’s there in the first place. Is this just another trail cam hoax by someone trying to get attention? Or maybe there’s a psycho killer clown lurking in the woods out there trying to lure in children to a hidden forest torture center.
#2. Someone Lurking Behind The Trees
This was an older photograph that you can tell was scanned onto a computer as indicated by the crease in the corner. This makes it all the more terrifying knowing that it would be much harder to fake an image like this if it came straight from the film! If you look at the wooded area behind the man near the edge of the cliff, you can make out what looks like a hooded figure lurking in the greenery!
The photographer and the man in the picture claim that there was no one else around at the time the photograph was taken and that they have no idea who the hooded figure in the picture might be. If you’re able to zoom in and get a better look, the face doesn’t even look entirely human! The scariest part is that the figure is behind the man who’s so close to the edge, giving the man little chance to escape should the hooded figure become violent!
#3. What Is Chasing That Deer?
This photograph was one taken by a trail camera in the middle of the night. On the left-hand side, we see a deer running, nothing too strange. When you look at the figure on the right, you can quickly see that something absolutely horrifying is chasing after the deer! The blurry figure looks as though it has wings and terrifying white eyes. Some say that it’s photographic evidence of the Jersey Devil. Others believe it’s just a fake image made by someone attempting to get attention. Either way, it’s a horrifying reminder of the terrifying things that happen in the dark.
Unfortunately, deer and other woodland creatures are subjected to the terrors of the night more than we’ll ever have to worry about. What do you think? Is this photograph just another hoax, or do you find it to be terrifying evidence of a horrible forest creature looking for deer to devour?
#4. A Plane Crash Finally Found
Unfortunately, the photograph above shows a missing plane that left Siberia, only to be found crashed in Russia. Imagine walking through the woods one day when you stumble upon this terrifying sight. Thankfully, the plane that was missing for so long was at least found, so the families have time to mourn their loss and bury their loved ones instead of having to wonder where on Earth they could be. Since it had been so long, you can tell that there isn’t much left of the passengers, who unfortunately lost their lives when the plane went down, as you can make out skeletons within the rubble of the plane.
Photographs like these are absolutely tragic but are reminders of what happens when a terrible accident like this happens. Although it’s a terrible tragedy that occurred, at least the family can have some peace after knowing what really happened in this horrific scenario
#5. A Mysterious Figure In The Fog
There’s nothing obviously scary about this particular photograph. It simply looks like a picture of three friends who wanted to remember their journey in the creepy wooded area. However, if you look to the right of the group, you’ll soon notice that there’s a figure hiding in the fog between two trees! Sure, maybe it’s just another person passing through the woods, but the people who took the picture don’t recall seeing anyone else while out on their journey! What a terrifying image to stumble upon afterward. The scariest part about the figure in the back is that it doesn’t totally look human.
The torso looks much shorter and bigger than the average man, with skinny legs to match. It makes us think that maybe the figure is hunching over or just has a scarier demeanor altogether. No matter what the case, photographs like these make us not want to go into the woods, like ever.
