London's skyline from fruits - another creation of Carl Warner and team

Carl Warner and a team of five model makers spent three weeks crafting the scene using hundreds of pieces of fruit and veg - all painstakingly glued together.

The Houses of Parliament are built from a mix of asparagus, green beans and runner beans which are mixed with baby sweetcorn to depict the intricate stonework.

The Gherkin, found in the Square mile, is cunningly crafted out of two types of melon and embedded with green beans to highlight its renowned spiralling glass frames.

While Nelson's column is cleverly constructed from a cucumber, baby courgettes and a carrot with a monkey nut and almond stuck on to it.

Other high profile London landmarks given a makeover include The London Eye which has green beans as spokes and its pods carefully crafted out of baby plum tomatoes.

The scenes are photographed in layers from foreground to background, as the process is very time-consuming and the food quickly wilts under the lights. Here, hot air balloons made of a variety of fruit and veg soar over fields of asparagus, courgettes, beans and corn

The images can take up to two or three days to build and photograph and then a couple of days retouching and fine-tuning them to blend together all the elements, such as parmesan cliffs with sweet potato boulders and cress and savoy cabbage foliage under a red cabbage sky

Carl spends a lot of time planning each image before shooting in order to choose the best ingredients to replicate larger scale shapes and forms within nature, like these coconut haystacks

He spends a lot of time staring at vegetables in supermarkets, which can make him seem a little odd. However, finding the right shaped broccoli to use for a tree is an all-important task

Underwater cave scene, complete with carrot stalactites, a pea pod boat, and sealife made of exotic fruits, cauliflower and broccoli. Carl hopes to produce a book in the future, reasoning that it would appeal to lovers of both food and art
