There is an explanation for the peculiar title of this picture. All the way up the side of the mountain there were miniature replicas of all the planets in the solar system, spaced proportionally along the road. The sun, a large yellow sphere mounted upon a lamp-post pole, emerged like some weird beacon out of the mist, and then several hundred metres further along, a marble-sized ‘earth’ was placed insignificantly upon a rock. The fog did make everything seem slightly otherworldly.
