ULLA!!!

By MrsS    

Quote:"The Martians ! They were inside the hoods of the machines they'd made. Massive metal things on legs !
Giant machines that walked"

"As the Heat Ray struck all five fighting machines exulted emitting deafening howls which roared like thunder ---
ULLA !ULLA ! "

"the sky a glowing blue
Red weed covered every scrap of ground
but a gentle breeze kept it swaying"



Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds - original version H.G.Wells

Another upload from Spurn, this time the sunset on Saturday night. Sufficiently fed and watered, we headed back down and after realising that the colour was all on the leeward side of the point, we headed that way.

As I hadn't ventured as far as the Pilot Station walkway, I decided to head over to see what I could find. Paul, Richard and I had already had a discussion about War of the Worlds, and I thought this fitted perfectly, right down the reddish colour on the water.

I did want to wait until the tide had covered all the sand, but it was coming in sooo fast, and when I realised I was sinking, it was time to hit the shutter and get back to drier ground! Wink

Hope you like it, thanks for looking, feel free to comment - - and have a gr8 Bank Holiday, whatever you do Smile

Cheers!

EDIT Just realised, this is my 350th upload!

There were ships of shapes and sizes
Scattered out along the bay
And I thought I heard her calling
As the steamer pulled away
The Invaders must have seen them
As across the coast they filed
Standing firm between them
There lay Thunder Child.

Must be the aftermath Wink
