Eye see! It's a fabulous shot, Keith, I just love the colours in the stonework. Click on the iris and it all becomes beautifully clear. I love it ✩ Theolfa
Thanks Theolfa. I liked the repeating, diminishing curves and it wasn't until I looked in the viewfinder that I saw the eye. I think the stone colours are natural as there are many different shades of sandstone in different parts of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
Whay man! aa nivvor knew yon HORUS waz a Northumbrrrian!
He's aaal ower the shop when ye get a good look!
Excellent find mate
Cheers Mike. I thought you would like this one. Even the colours of the rock look Egyptian! They must have heard about this from the Geordie brickies we sent to build them pointy hills.
definitely agreeing with Theolfa, the colors of the rock are superb as well as the "eye" one can see .. but to clarify for myself, are we talking about Horus the deity
Hi Rafael. Thanks for you comment. I was referring in the title to my earlier shot HERE,which you have already commented on. I just keep seeing eyes in the landscape and architecture.
Maybe we should all go "eye spotting" on our expeditions.
I don't know what it is about this picture Keith but I came back for a second stare. It might be the color of the rock, but there is just summat about this that makes it a bit magical!
All the best mate from tha knows where.
Cheers Jethro. I know what you mean about the rocks. I think it is quite surprising that they went to the trouble of creating a work of art for what is really just a fireplace on an industrial limekiln.
you have got a good eye Keith Beautiful colors and amazing construction!! Best wishes and a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you, Peter
Thanks Peter. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you, too>
Thanks Billy. This is the second in the Horus series of photos. The stonework is probably so attractive because of the pink, iron-rich sandstone they nicked from the Dunbar area. I remember going to a bike rally near there and it rained all weekend. The mud was bright red!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
Oooh, this is a good one...it even has an eyelid and an eyebrow! Also, I agree with all the comments above!
