If you’re not already familiar with Carl Warner, I recommend skipping the next paragraph and jumping directly to our photo gallery embedded inside this post – it will be more fun this way, trust me! Can you learn by yourself why these landscapes are featured on moillusions.com at all? Only thing you need to know is that landscapes below were taken in real life and haven’t been photoshopped in any way!

Old timer viewers will remember British artist Carl Warner almost immediately, as we already published some of his foodscapes before. At first glance the photographs appear remarkably realistic, but rather than brave the elements, the artist prefers to create his own landscapes entirely out of food. Over the past 10 years, Warner has been making these kind landscapes and even published a book about them!

  9. A Snail says:

    Very nice set of photos. It would be nice to see the work from different angles.

    I just had an idea… Can you make a page with links to a bunch of illusions that are suitable for desktop backgrounds?

  11. Sarah-Jane says:

    I love these!!!! My favourite is definately the fish one although i think the most realistic is probably either the first one or the 6th one!
    These are amazing!

  16. he says:

      I have.I really like Ripley’s believe it or not,they’re good books…Anyways,I really really really like this,and your mention of Ripley’s believe it or not.

  18. Anonymous says:

    I want to eat every one of the pictures.

  19. Slammer says:

    WOW. Incredible. I can’t believe I haven’t seen these before…these are awesome!!! But if no photoshoping was used, how’d he make the light rays on the lamp or cottage trees, and the light coming from the lamp and lighthouse? And if it’s made “entireley out of food” how does he make the sky with clouds? or smoke in the chimney? lol. Still, even if these weren’t all food or had minimal photoshoping, just making the rest of it entirely from food is still really impressive. :)

    • Dolphin says:

      He made the main things out of food,but not the clouds or sky(How would he do that,anyway?),but anyways it’s really cool…

  20. a person says:

  25. Maze says:

    Awesome pictures!
    (1st yay!)

  26. Nate says:

    Ha! Awesome!

    I didn’t figure it out until the fourth picture when I saw the broccoli, now I can’t see anything but food in the first pic; I can’t believe I missed it.

    My fave is the 5th with the fish as the water, and the boats creating that little ripple in the water, it looks so cool…

  27. jasper says:

    Amazing and high quality! I was reading the paragraph about the pics and out of the corner of my eye i saw the cowboy pic then i looked at it more closely and it was made out of food! Very cool :D

  28. keylan says:

    o its made out of food i was thinking that the big rock in the first picture looked remarkably like meat

  29. Bettablue says:

    Wow. These are good. The realism as almost too much to believe. Nice work.

  40. michael j. says:

    Yes, me too!!!

  41. Nicholas says:

    very cool, it was the broccoli trees that gave it away for me

  42. john says:

    this is real interesting. the only problem is that i only can recognise the largest quantites of the food. like the meat mountains, or the sea made of fish, or the broccoli forest. real interesting though :D

  43. Dolphin says:

    Really cool.Really really cool…I really think it’s cool…I also like guessing what different food different things are made of.Some of them are very obvious(Such as the broccoli,the bread,the meat,etc.),and some are not.That’s one of the good things about it;you can have fun with it by guessing what the food is.

  44. km0 says:

    the first one was a bit to see hard but others were pretty
    easy and cool.

  45. kai says:
