Here's another visual ambiguity similar to the 'Time Floats By' image from a couple of days ago. In the same vein, it plays on the impossibility of the never-ending stairway, which most people will recognise from M.C. Escher's work. I created the slabs from a shot I took of some stonework and then using a single layer for each stone placed them around to create the stairway. The balls, which have a slight amount of movement applied were given shape and form individually.

Shots include the tree on top of Burrow Hill, Kingsbury Episcopi, Martock, Somerset, some stonework at the reclamation site outside Wells, Somerset and a selection of coloured balls.

Thanks for all the support on the previous version, and thanks for looking in.

P.S. No prizes for guessing it's STILL raining...

It looks like something from the Teletubbies set. As you say, it is an ambiguity and therefor makes you think. Andy

Yup, cleverly done once again Dave .... I really like the use of the strong (almost child-like) colours here.

Thanks Gilbert, a good score! It looked a little plain without those balls Sandy, I haven't seen the Teletubbies, so I'll take your word for it Andy.

Cheers for that Dave, I'm happy with child-like, it fits me very well! Thanks Patti & Edgar for your support, and to those clickers too.

Went up there once Dave - never saw those steps Wink
Another well constructed image.

Meticulous and beautifully crafted as always Dave but there's something wrong here. I think the way these are apparently lying on flat ground forces the eye to try and rationalise what it's seeing in a way that wasn't necessary in your previous image. It's a great looking, colourful picture but to me it doesn't feel wrong in quite the right way. Smile

They're a new feature of the hill Brian! Actually Eric, this was my second attempt at this stairway. Initially I had it on top of some brickwalls and there were goldfish in a pond in the centre, but I wasn't happy with that one. I know what you mean and I'll have another look for a more appropriate background. Cheers all.

P.S. I think maybe it's because your eye is looking up the hill and these perhaps should be viewed from a higher perspective!

I needed to look closer to see the stairs in this image - trying to see what works better in the clocks and I think it has something to do with
..........spaces between each block
..........contrasting colours make each block stand out so well
..........sky and space behind rather than a solid surface
Love your ideas and also Brian's comment!!

Thanks for that Helen, you're right about this one, it was much more of a challenge and doesn't work visually quite so well. I'll probably have another go, armed with all the good feedback ideas. Thanks again everyone.
