photoblog image Sunset over Another Place

Sunset over Another Place

The sun sinks over Liverpool bay and one of Antony Gormleys statues is sillouetted against it whislt a couple of photographers seek out a location further out towards the seas edge.

Another Place is an installation of 100 statues cast from the body of sculptor Antony Gormely and installed over an area of Crosby beach to the north of Liverpool. There has been much debate on these statues, about staying or going, but it now looks like they will be here for some while yet. I wish I had a pound for every photograph of them that I have seen, I would be rich. They still draw photographers from all over the region back to try for another winning image though.

Stunning Les, really like your take on these figures. mal
I agree: I've seen many shots of these statues, but this is one of the best!
Just a perfect composition. It is hard to tell whether it is a person or a statue, and the choice of silo was spot on. Jealous!
I love seeing these images crop up and yours is no exception with your creative echo of other 'real' silhouettes and the shape of cloud echoed in the wet sand. Are the statues still there - I'd like to have a go too?! Welcome to Shutterchance!
Excellent shot - I've posted a couple of images of these guys but this beats any of them.
