Pod Leader

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 30 December 2009 in Documentary & Street.

This ugly guy with the fang like protuberances seems to be the leader. He seems pretty nasty!

Pods mini-series 2 of 4.

Probably more powerful with this isolated icy stone. Looks like an alien indeed with a lot of little feet...

A great composition. The time of the obturation creates a beautiful effect around the pod.

Alien or domestic...this blob of ice makes a fine subject in this excellent black and white image. Of course, I may have dreams that a similar blob is slithering across my bed tonight.... Very nice shot.

Looks like the pod leader has grown some teeth! The B & W tones and the "sweeping effect" of the water makes this look almost like a charcoal drawing.
