Overview of the Manor
Most (or all) of my photos of Phantom Manor have thusfar been from the pedestrian approaching, coming up to the Manor from the Hub side, show it looming on a hill, looking ominous and eerie. Today, I thought I'd feature a shot from basically the opposite angle, taken mid-ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. From this view, one can see how sprawling the Manor grounds are, a sign of the former Ravenswood fortune. Of course, these days, it looks spookier than grand, but that's why I love it. There's an elegant state of decay here that just really enhances that sinister and intriguing backstory!
