The Otherworld

What if there is an Otherworld, parallel to but distinct from our own world, that we can only access if the conditions are right?

Halloween would be such a time, the old Samhain, when the veil between the worlds would thin.

Also, the two worlds meet in the between states, the times and places inbetween – doorways and gates, rivers, the solstices, staircases, and so on.

And we just might catch a glimpse of the Otherworld in the beauty of autumn, which shines out so strongly in between the lush life of summer and the stark death of winter.

I took this image today, but it has already become one of my personal favourites. It is a happy accident – I unintentionally overexposed it, and then I darkened it just a very little and added a white vignette in post processing. A touch of accidental magic that promises well for the rest of the week.

For Best Shot Monday.
