Delightfully Dark Finds


One of my favourite people on Etsy is photographer, Donna, of Gothicrow. I already own a number of her Gothic photographs, and it requires a certain amount of restraint on my part not to feature her work on my blog every week. So, with the Yuletide season upon us, I've decided to indulge myself and highlight some of Donna's wintery images.


  1. Truly amazing!!!! What a talent!


  2. Thank you so much for mentioning me in this gloriously dark and interesting blog! >^,,^<

  3. Very beautiful and ethreal. Thank you for sharing these amazing photographs.

    Merry Yule, V.

  4. Beautiful pictures! She's quite an artist with her camera!

  5. Her photos are spectacular. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I just adore all these works sooooo much! Someone who really gets the art and beauty of the macabre.

  7. There is a lot of talent out there and a lot of great stuff. I like the crow and the barn.

  8. That angel statues is very cool.

  9. Hi LuLu,

    They're beautiful aren't they?! Very talented indeed!

    Hi Donna/Gothicrow,

    My pleasure and thank you!!! You know how much I love your beautiful photography!!

    Hi Vivienne,

    I love all of Donna's work, but the snow does give the images an ethereal quality, doesn't it?! I love having the opportunity of sharing such magical photographs with you.

    Hi Lorelei,

    Yes, Donna definitely has an artistic eye. I particularly love her trademark images of crows in old, Gothic cemeteries! They're stunning!!

    Hi wicKED,

    I love her work! It's so hard picking just a handful of examples.

    Hi Mark,

    I completely agree, and my pleasure!

    Hi Autumn,

    "Someone who really gets the art and beauty of the macabre." Couldn't have put it better!!

    Hi Matt,

    Crows are Donna's trademark. I love all her work, but the crows in the cemeteries are definitely my favourites!

    Hi merricat,

    It's summertime, and quite hot here, in Australia, but I can at least imagine a little bit of a winter wonderlandy goodness with these lovely images.

    Hi Leo,

    Yes, I think the ice angels are particularly poignant. Cemetery statues are always mournful, but the icicles make me think of frozen tears.

  10. Hi Jenny,

    Don't worry! It's a crazy-busy time of year!!

  11. These are really beautiful photographs! I'd never seen her work before, thank you for sharing :)

  12. Hi Lilia,

    Pleasure! Check out the rest of Donna's work on Etsy. It really is breathtaking!

  13. I think you already know that I'm a big Gothicrow fan. :) I love the light and shadows in these, the square format, and of course the subject matter! I hadn't seen the winter ones before ~ very pretty.

  14. Hi Justine,

    Yes, I know you're another member of the Gothicrow appreciation society. :) I'm usually so focused on Donna's gothic cemetery shots that it only just dawned on me that I could do a bit more of a seasonal wintery theme with her work as well.
