I was in Newcastle in the NE of England on Wednesday taking my daughter to a University interview. The main road in and out of the city passes right next to a famous statue called the "Angel of the North" by sculptor Antony Gormley.
He's the sculptor who created the 'iron men' statues on Crosby Beach that I've photographed so often.
Anyway here's a quick shot that I took as we were leaving the city - well actually it's a slow shot as it was a 4 minute exposure but you know what I mean!
We really didn't have much time there but I guess these are the situations where lots of practice taking long exposure photos pays off.
The scale of the statue doesn't really come across well in this photo but it is enormous - it is 20 metres (66 ft) tall, with wings measuring 54 metres (177 ft) across.
Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog
