The Singing Ringing Tree...


Photo Information
.. or more correctly the Tree Panopticon just outside Burnley. This is a tubular steel sculpture that sings, allegedly, it is more of an eerie moaning sound, as the wind off the moors blows through it's pipes.

Interesting! I like the way you have caught this; but is it really an eye-sore?

It makes a fabulous image, sort of natural but with a twist if you know what I mean!
