UFOs over Bodmin Moors Part 2...

Okay, so it was April 1st...

Hi Guys,

I thought I had better come clean, as so many of you guys emailed me to ask about the “UFOs and some of you guessed correctly that yes it me having a bit of fun with you all on “All Fools Day” – April 1st.

The images were lifted from the Internet, with thanks and apologies to the folks that the images belonged to. I had planned on getting images from someone I know that lived in the area for a while, but this became a last minute affair and was a hotchpotch of snaffled images and Photoshop.

Respectively the two photo credits are as follows with many thanks:

Image 2: ScienceRay

I cannot believe just how many of you thought they were real, although some you guessed correctly as I say.

I hope you enjoyed the fun, as much as we did here at the Keep.

Until next time have fun!

Hey, no problem, Matthew.

It was the least I could do, in light of "borrowing" your photo.

I had originally planned on contacting a friend of mine from that part of the world, but time caught me up and suddenly there I was with an idea, but no photo.

I googled the phrase UFO's over Bodmin Moors for a photograph and came across yours, which I thought was just right for what I had in mind for the prank.

I would have hated to have just used someone else's work though, without giving credit where it was due.

I am just glad you were not offended with me using it.

I checked your website out following this and must say you have some excellent stuff on there.

Thanks for dropping by and please feel free to keep in touch.

Best Wishes,
