Jill Harness

Have you ever wandered into a dead part of a forest and thought to yourself, "this looks like a scene from a Tim Burton movie"? These 18 creepy landscapes are kind of like that. Between desolate, fog-riddled scenery  and steaming pools of smoke shooting up from Icelandic hot springs, the whole post reminds us how scary the natural world can be.

Interestingly, the skull cliff seen above is one of many in the cliffs near Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. Even when you know the illusion is caused by erosion of the soil, the effect is still a bit chilling.
