What on Earth 2 - Revealed

Below is the pic I showed yesterday.

Whatonearth2

and this is the original from which it was cropped.

Congratulations to Andrew for getting the answer correct.

  1. "I fear this may be too easy"

    A very generous clue if I may say so, Calum.

  2. A tad generous I'd say, MTG. :)

    I must look for another to tease you with.

  3. "cropped"? Oh, I see, "cropped" means cropped and altered using image manipulation software. I think I'll take one of the sun, use software to turn it black, then laugh at everybody that calls it a snooker ball.

  4. Switching topic... I've finally worked out who Calum reminds me of. Been bugging me for ages. If anyone wants to see Calum (with slight image manipulation) just Google an image of the Scottish folk musician Phil Cunningham, make sure it is a recent image, and imagine him looking a bit older and little bit more worried and haggard, and there you are: that's Calum revealed! Mind you I've only met Calum once, and he wasn't singing, but that's who he put me in mind of.

  5. Be safe and stay indoors in the morning whilst I have a flying lesson, Calum (cue Wagnerian Luftwaffe music.)

  6. "Stay indoors" MTG? Are you flying some special plane that won't do any damage if it lands on a house? I'd say we should all stay outdoors so we have a chance of seeing you coming and getting out of the way. Good luck though, and have fun.

  7. I knew the answer. I knew it. I knew it was a tree in a snowy field. And I didn't trust myself to write it down....Ah! well Let Andrew win the prize. He needs it...

  8. Andrew You said of the tile post,

    "A very nice demonstration of how interesting things can be found amidst the seemingly banal, by focusing on the right bit. Very nice (and keep 'em coming please)."

    That too was cropped and manipulated.

    I did no more with the snow picture but now you've gone all high and mighty.

    You ARE impossible! :)

    AND I haven't laughed at anyone's attempts.

    Would you rather I showed a small piece of snow and said, "Now folks, guess what this is." You'd ridicule me.

    I'm going to speak to the nurses about you because you've become a real pain in the arse. I'm going to see if I can be moved to a different wing! :)

  9. MTG Thanks for the warning but can you gives us a hint of the time.

    It's going to be quite a nice weekend and I'd like to get out sometime.

    We pedestrian chasing, North by Northwest crop dusting type are not Kamikaze.

  11. Calum told me: "You ARE impossible..."

    And yet, Calum, I EXIST! So clearly, I am, indeed, A MIRACLE!

  12. Oh... so the tile image was manipulated too was it? In that case, I retract my comment "A very nice demonstration of how interesting things can be found amidst the seemingly banal, by focusing on the right bit. Very nice (and keep 'em coming please)." and replace it with "A cautionary demonstration of how interesting things can be found amidst the seemingly banal, by focusing on the right bit and then changing it entirely. A timely warning of what unscrupulous deception can go on in this sinister world. Keep 'em coming please."

  13. Andrew, you are NOT the miracle. That you have survived so long is THE miracle.

  14. I thought it looked rather like a lunar landscape!
