First in the series, speculating in Photographic Social Metaphor ™ terms on the likely gap in technological advancement between humans and aliens ( tree vs. mobile phone mast ), should any ever actually land on Earth ( been a long wait, UFO watchers – ed )
( Cumbria, Grizedale Forest. The long drag )
‘what’s that coming over the hill’ is it a monster? well it certainly looks like a phone mast! is it? a terrible place to put it, if it is one. A blot on the landscape of a particularly beautiful area, same old story really. How do these things get the permission to be put up—–probably down to money eh! 😀
Phone mast it is! There are several within the forest ( see next up ) sited specifically at hilltop locations. There was a phone mast fad a few years ago when some were disguised ( not very well )as trees. Don’t know what happened to them, but as you say, likely boiling down to expense of production.
