Well I had no idea what to enter for this, so yes it's a shoehorn, taken at Cottesloe Beach at the sundial, it takes perfect time with the shadow it casts.


Ok I know it's a little blown out, but I think it adds to the mood of the shot.

Not bad for a challenge I wasn't going to enter, still I'm sure it will drop!

Dropped a bit, but still surprised it's over 7.00. Nice if it would stay there, it's been a while since I scored over 7.00, loving the comments as well!

Not staying over 7.00 dropped in the last half hour, you get that!

Thanks for the nice comments, not bad for an image that was completely blown out and essentially a snapshot taken after a lunch I had with my sister in law, and it was her that suggested we view this, so hence quite the coincidence actually!

This reminds me of a place I visited in India, where they had giant astronomical instruments that looked very much like this. A wonderful capture, with very interesting pp'g.

This feels like a 1950's science fiction movie. At least humanity was warned. Suitably processed to enhance the portentousness.
