Not sure if architecture is the right category for this; it was a tree sculpture in the grounds of Longleat House. I wished I'd had a better zoom at the time but this is the best my little compact could manage!

Wow thanks for all the nice comments. I'm looking forward to returning to Longleat soon, now that I have my 300D, to reshoot.

Tommy, I've looked up on the Internet for a full view of the tree (I do have one I took but it's not worth uploading on here!) and found a few pics at: It is called the "Tree of Life" and is a blown glass and steel sculpture by Neil Wilkin. Another article showing the tree can be viewed at

This is a really cool image. It reminds me a bit of the London Eye from the thumbnail, with each bulb looking a bit like one of the capsules. Great reflections caught in the bulbs too.
