FANTASY PHOTOGRAPHY: Gates of the Underworld

This is the very first of these shots I ever took, and still one of the best. I have another version with a purple sky, but this one beats it by a whisker. The skull is that of a sow, which I took home from a medieval-style banquet, and from which I got a saucepan full of meat. Good stuff, too. I tried using fishermens' bait maggots to clean the skull up, but found that the maggots sold in fishing shops are what fishermen would want them to be: fat and sated; not what I wanted them to be: thin and hungry. The maggots weren't interested in my sow's head, and so I buried it in the garden for a few weeks, and the worms did the job instead.
