This photo was taken on the beach at Crosby which is on the harbour approaches to Liverpool in the north west of England.
There are 100 of these life size cast iron figures by the sculptor Antony Gormley spread out over a 2 mile stretch of the beach. With the changing light, weather & tides the figures alter in their relationship to the beach as well as each other.
I think it is a truly wonderful work of public art!
The photo was taken well after sunset in dark and rapidly changing weather. Even though I used a tripod far bigger than the tiny Fuji F31 compact camera that it was supporting, I found afterward that only about half the photos I took were useable as I had not always pushed the tripod hard enough into the soft sand.
I hope you like the photo and that you get a sense of how surreal it felt all alone on the beach at night with just those statues for company!
