My Sunday Photo 12 July 2015

the road to nowhere!- south-west of Stanthorpe Queensland 


We got severely lost with no GPS, little petrol, and no idea where we were!  There were dead men hanging from trees and signs saying Do not leave the road.  Oh boy, were we scared!  No phone signal and a storm brewing with possible snow.  I think my hair turned grey in a few hours:)

    1. Thanks Nicola. It was very spooky but not as spooky as the tree with the dead man swinging in the breeze.

  10. Those trees would have been enough to scare me let alone dead men hanging, being lost, low on petrol and without phone signal! Glad you found your way home.

    1. thanks tara
      hubby didn't want to tell me at first how low the petrol was but i think he got freaked out and had to tell me. we limped into town at long long last with the car breathing in the last few fumes of petrol.

  12. Dead men? Seriously? The photo looked hauntingly beautiful until I read the caption. Now it takes on a Halloweenish Ghoulishness. Glad you're ok, I am sure this photo raises the hair on your arms!!!

    1. yep nikki it gives me a shiver just looking at it. someone clearly did not want visitors as they had strung up stuffed clothes to look like men and had hung them from the trees. and the signs were not welcoming either!

  18. Very stark and austere Sherry.

    Perhaps you should write your experience into a short story for Halloween (and exorcise the ghosts - forgive the pun).

      it is weirdly haunting. such a bizarre experience in the 21st century to be completely lost.
