Hall Of The Mountain King by kkart Hall Of The Mountain King by kkart
Photo thoughts & how I took it--- Happy Halloween everyone! "Hall Of The Mountain King" which I based on the song of the same title from the band "Savatage" of which you can listen to here on youtube [link]
I figured this image was quite appropriate for Halloween.

Located outside of Estes Park, St. Malo's Cathedral (some call it St Katherine's) has always given me wonderful images. Heck I have several in my gallery here already. However this Fall was different in that there was fog! We don't get a lot of fog here in Colorado and I raced over here to get the shot. So thick I could barely see the chapel. I love this place, it looks like something out of Lord Of The Rings or a Gothic novel. Kind of spooky isn't it! Also if any of you are on Spotify, I made up a Halloween playlist. It is a big mix of music and some of it is just downright creepy [link]

I live in Colorado and I've been here before--it looks a lot different and creepy when it's foggy, haha. Great photo, I love that song I think the image fits perfectly.

Beautiful photo! I've never gotten up to Estes Park yet, but now I have something other than the Stanley to go take photos of! Excellent job getting out before the fog burned off. Definitely spooky looking.

However, when I saw your title, I immediately thought of one of my favorite classical composers, Edvard Grieg. His "In the Hall of the Mountain King" can be heard on Youtube here; [link] ... it starts out a little quiet ... but it fits the photo as well.

Funny, I also thought he was referring to Grieg's composition and also thought the image fit very well with the piece XD
