After

The next morning the old horse was found without his saddle, and with the bridle under his feet, soberly cropping the grass at his master's gate. Ichabod did not make his appearance at breakfast -- dinner hour came, but no Ichabod. The boys assembled at the schoolhouse, and strolled idly about the banks of the brook; but no schoolmaster. Hans Van Ripper now began to feel some uneasiness about the fate of poor Ichabod, and his saddle. An inquiry was set on foot, and after diligent investigation they came upon his traces. In one part of the road leading to the church was found the saddle trampled in the dirt; the tracks of horses' hoofs deeply dented in the road, and evidently at furious speed, were traced to the bridge, beyond which, on the bank of a broad part of the brook, where the water ran deep and black, was found the hat of the unfortunate Ichabod, and close beside it a shattered pumpkin.

Yeah, see? These Haunt pics taken for 2010 are extra amazing! Bean, you are an amazing photog! There's a special feel to the ones on the gallery page(I'm guessing it's the props ledning that feeling) and I look forward to seeing the extra ones not shown yet!

I was telling her that this morning. That her instant photos make my props look a million times neater.

My favorite shots of this year's display were all taken by Bean.

Was that "mist" added or natural. Looks a bit paranormal to me. Tworivers
