What Do You See?

Imagine a country lane in the late hours of the night. The moon above shines bright and full, its light casting dim shadows everywhere. Only the soft rushing of the wind in the trees reaches your ears. As you walk, you see a pair of lights glowing a little ways away. Walking closer reveals a wall of stone. Small lamps reveal the gate through which you must pass if you wish to continue. But a slight movement stays your steps. A cat appears, walking across your path without a glance in your direction. What do you see before you? To some, this is nothing to be concerned with. But maybe, just maybe, you feel a slight sense of fear. Perhaps you notice that the lamps, though bright, seem to illuminate precious little. Maybe you can see the cat. . .or can you?  The shadow is clear. . .but where is its source? In the back of your mind, you realize that things are unnaturally quiet. Why is this wall here? Who is keeping the lamps lit? Do you dare continue on? It depends entirely upon what you see here. This picture is one of my first attempts at creating a piece with the prime focus being the landscape (but lets not forget that spooky kitty).  I am very pleased with how the walls and the lantern came out.  But just so this is perfectly clear:  that is a ghost cat.  Notice how you can see right through it.  Also notice its glowing yellow eyes.  Hopefully that makes the purpose of this picture clearer.
