Weekend in Black and White: Who Knows What This Is?

Thought I'd post a little puzzle today.

I'll reveal its secret later in the week when I might surprise some people although I expect a few might be familiar with it.

Just one clue, it wasn't here this time last year but similar things have been appearing around the country for more than a decade.

A contribution to The Weekend in Black and White.

Update: for the answer see here.


  1. It's an intriguing shape, and a fine subject for black and white.

  2. No idea, but I like what you've done with it!

  3. You've created quite a puzzle for us. Visual clues: there is a water drop on the lower left. By its size, I think this is not as huge as it appears. The tiny dotted texture looks to be from your processing, so the object may, in reality, be smooth. But, Im stumped.

    A wild guess, some kind of sun dial ---where the sun shines through the hole and tells the time by where it lands.

  4. Great image Gerald.. could it be a salad fork....

  5. It does have a Christmassy feel, but I suppose that is to easy.

  6. Looks as though it may be on the Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route 62?
