A haunting snowy scene at Brunnegg Castle in Switzerland, during the harsh winter, a menacing ghostly figure of the bailiff riding on a black horse. A castle looms in the background, partially obscured by a fierce, swirling snowstorm. The landscape is eerily lit by a full moon, casting long sinister shadows. The bailiff should appear as a figure from Swiss folklore, wearing traditional, historical attire, and his face should be shrouded in mystery, a sense of foreboding and the supernatural, highlighting the legend's themes of a cursed hunt and a tragic tale.  by Ted Tschopp
