Don’t you dare get lost in this gallery of 25 haunting forests

Like something straight out of a Disney movie, the forests in this eerie gallery look like all they’re missing is a witch or goblin lurking in the shadows.

Of course, we can thank the creative use of filters and specific lighting effects to add to the spooky sensibilities of these forests, but we certainly wouldn’t want to be caught in them alone.

It’s also a great reminder of the stunning diversity of woodland across this amazing planet, where the boggy lowlands of one country can stand in stark contrast to the alpine starkness of another.

Enjoy the gallery, and maybe even take some notes for future vacation possibilities. After all, who wouldn’t want to meet a goblin?
