Excellent ;>), I have to agree with Joe above it looks like something of a b-rated sci-fi movie. Nice lighting all the same.

Best wishes Mick

Well I suppose I might have been one of the aliens Joe - we waited in vain for the little green men to come out ... ;-)

Cheers from cold and rainy Shropshire, Amelia

Hi there Mick, what do you mean B-rated - this is the stuff of great Sci-fi I'll have you know!

The 'seed object' is supposed to resemble the seeds of Corn Spurrey. I'll leave you to your imagination. :)))

Cheers, Amelia

How I well remember those flying saucers Bonnie Lad. Rice paper containers of fizzy sherbet that made me sneeze. Yes - that's exactly what it is, but the sherbet had all dissolved by the time we got here. ;-)

The area has been 'lent' by the local farmer to artists who have created landscape art, some of it being very interesting, and some of it rather odd like this one. But let me tell you dear Sarah - I had a marvellous flight of fancy in this saucer. Yes I was taken for a ride, but you wouldn't believe what I saw from outer space. It is unfortunate that the little green men wouldn't allow me to take the camera into the spacecraft. I could have been a rich woman by now! ;-)

Hugs, Amelia
