I think you must be mad to go up there. A good shot with added impact by the position of the dog and the eerie looking forest behind.

I've only just been watching Derek Ackorah's Ghost Town on tv and he encountered a dog-like beast from the underworld in an ancient woodland, and then I come on here and find your photo, spooky or what lol

It's a brilliantly atmospheric shot Julie, I thought it wouldnt be too long b4 you'd be back on the B&W photos ;o)
Great work as always.
Hope it'll be fine for Sunday.
