I think it's a micrograph of a metal object, perhaps the blade of a serrated knife.

Hoic.. I have not looked back onto this thread, nor have I been online lately.. Yup you were sure right ;)

The first thing I noticed is that it appears to unfold, like a fan, except that the rotation centers don't seem to line up.  Also, there seems to be a wide depth of focus, implying that the photo was taken from some distance away, which in turn implies that it's big.  The blue background looks like it's the sky.  I can't make out any fabrication marks either, which also suggests that it's big.  My best guess is that it's an abstract work of art.  I just hope MonikaS is still around to tell us.

Is it some sort of fan or water wheel! It looks like a a few huge spoked wheels with hog wire on it!

I am counting three individual wheels covered with wire but they seem to be turning at different paces or separately from each other possibly different rates of speed...?

The Roof of the new Waterloo station in London or Kings Cross?

Both have been built for the Eurostar to go through the Channel Tunnel to France.

I think this is a celling of a stadium or something like that, like a big construction going on in a incomplete condition.
