Gothic....

But, strangest of all, the very instant the shore was touched, an immense dog sprang up on deck from below ... and running forward, jumped from the bow on to the sand. Making straight for the steep cliff, where the churchyard hangs over the laneway to the East Pier ... it disappeared in the darkness."

from Dracula by Bram Stoker, 1897

Dracula, in the guise of a great dog arrives in Whitby... if you hadn't guessed, this is the ruin of Whitby Abbey.

DancingDolphin Very dramatic! A much better attempt at shooting in to the light than mine the other day. I like your more 'landscape' approach.

Annbramwell Very dramatic, a beautiful picture... I am sure when we visited Whitby, we had a 3 mile trek up a very steep hill to get to the Abbey... are there two in Whitby or am I going mad?

TIM927 Now Dracula's story has more action in my mind, I usually have to read that book in English once a year with pupils, I´m sure that now when we arrive to the part where the boat arrives in Whitby I'll describe this photo to them. what a misterious landscape!
