Iron Men

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 5 February 2010 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Two of sculptor Antony Gormley's famous iron men statues at low tide on the beach at Crosby in NW England

It was a grey, misty and very rainy day - typical of winter on the beach in this part of the world.

Photographed at f1.4 with a 50mm lens to get that background blur.

NIKON D40 1/640 second F/1.4 ISO 200 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

One day I'll get across there to see these for myself. You have done a good job in shrouding them with mystery.

Long after we're gone this sculptures will confound archaeologists. Terrific shot. Great sense of space. There's a sort of sad tranquility in it.
