Dayshots from Halloween 2006

I never posted any daylight shoots of our 2006 yard haunt. Picasa has a new embedded slide show feature so I thought I'd use it.

Nox Arcana - Shadow of the Raven

"Ye who read these words are still among the living, but I who write shall have long since gone my way into the region of shadows. Plagued by ghosts from the past, my soul can find no release from its eternal sorrow. Lost loves, spirits of the dead... madmen and devils have each in turn visited me here in the solitude of my chamber, to haunt and torment me. I implore you to heed my tale, as I relate the grim and ghastly things that befell me in my darkest hour... once upon a midnight dreary..."

Today I received the latest Nox Arcana CD titled "Shadow of the Raven".

From their web site:
Delve into the haunted realms of Edgar Allan Poe, as Nox Arcana enriches the classic tales of the literary master of the macabre with a lush musical tapestry of Victorian elegance and Gothic nightmares. This dark soundscape of ghostly melodies, mournful dirges, eerie sound effects and ominous orchestrations is accompanied by Joseph Vargo's lavish artwork depicting Poe's classic horror tales, and even offers fans a hidden "gold bug" riddle.
I really like the Edgar Allan Poe tie-ins and the CD artwork is fantastic. Good stuff!

Nox Arcana fans will want this one in their collection.
