This weird looking image isn't a 'Alien Spacecraft' that has just beamed down to sunny Kent to sample it's wonderful produce. Oh no, it is in fact the 'Orangery' which stands in the beautiful grounds of Chiddingstone Castle, which is located just a few miles short of Tunbridge Wells. The castle is situated just outside the village of Chiddingstone, which dates back to around the middle of the 15th Century. The village and castle are very picturesque, and are currently under the ownership of the National Trust. A magnificent place to visit, relax and unwind, and if possible capture some of its beauty for an eternity.

Very well composed - Love the shadows from the glass, and that is a fantastic blue. Still think the aliens fooled you though WinkWinkWinkWinkWinkWink

And here's me thinking we had been invaded and you had the proof lol.

Good capture and well spotted , I like the lines, the shadows, it's a well thought out, well put together capture of (aliens landing) a shot many of us would have missed. Very good work.
