Another Place

Another Place is the name given to the Gormley sculptures on Crosby Beach, Merseyside. There is a collection of 100 identical statues all facing the sea at different distances from the shoreline.
Now, I’ve had a really nice carbon fibre tripod for a few years and it’s had little use, I’ve also got a Hoya 10 stop neutral density filter which has been sitting in a drawer for over 5 years – I had to break the seal on the box to use it today. Similarly I haven’t done any landscape work for an awful long time so this shoot was way off my normal scale and made me think a bit more about the technical aspect of the task as well as the aesthetic one. I spent about 2 hours on the beach and wanted to capture the mood of the place and luckily the lighting conditions helped along with the fact that the tide was beginning to recede. Below are some of the shots taken…
