It's an absolutely stunning shot with or without noticing the skull. Excellent stuff, MAK.

Congrats on your ribbon Marac! Yeah, I think if you displayed it vertically, you may have beaten me (I for one did not see the skull when I voted). So thanks for that! ))

Yes I did but I thought it was maybe too obvious like that, as well as portrait orentation would mean some people would have to scroll to see the image.... I added it as a thumbnail in the notes for anyone else who may of missed it.

When I went down to the quarry edge the huge skull literally 'jumped' right out at me, I was very lucky, it was autumn colour mixed with deep black still waters, the whole vibe down there was crazy.

Congrats on this one! I admit I didn't see the something else until after the challenge finished. Did you consider posting it in the vertical orientation?

It's an old Quarry in the Lake District so, yes it is man made, did they design a skull image? I very much doubt it otherwise I have to commend the explosives expert for his artistic streak :)

The place is called Hodge Close, it's a bit of a climb to get down there but when I saw the Skull, it blew my mind (pun intended).

Thank you for your interest.

ETA: Congratulations. I got so carried away by what I was seeing that I forgot to say that !!

There is something very malevolent about this scene in spite of the pretty golden tree. Maybe that tree is a siren, or Judas gost, enticing the unwary to their doom. Top 2.
