Grim sentinel transversed through the long dead, stale air.
Tirelessly searching for signs of life, where it didn't expect to find any,
Between the waves of staticky, bursts of gamma particles.
Its hundreds of tiny eyes, constantly in motion focused on the surroundings, picking up every single motion, every single whisper,
examining the terrain and forwarding the data.
Its breath irradiated hellish heat that ruptured metal and cooked stone with screeching booms, breaking the still melody of absolute silence.
Fire danced through the dead monoliths, erasing the last of ancient memories.
The mechanical nightmare descended, vibrating and interlocking its metallic skin,
probing the surface with beams of blinding light.

There was something amiss here.
Something clearly alive was staring back.

First comment dance2
you have this amazing talent in creating apacalyptic atmosphere. And your buildings.. are you an architect?

haha
thanks!"

Dramatic and beautiful.

I love the fire in this picture, and the way you can see the heat shimmering in the air. I find all of your pictures have a 'war of the worlds' feel to them, but they are more complex. I don't usually like modern style pictures (as in sky scrapers etc), but I love your style and the sheer realism of them all!!

Just looking at the pictures you make, it makes me feel like the buildings are going to collapse and with a catastrophic cacauphony of noise, such as no living nightmare has ever heard will smite the very spot at which is tand with such power as to make the absolute darkest depths of the world tremble. =) good pic! it spooks me, but i like it like that!
