Many thanks for all your comments on my recent upload.
Also thanks to Martin JP, Barbara Hirst, and Paul Morgan for their UA again very much appreciated.

While in the Olympic stadium on Monday (had tickets for the dress rehersal). I had a chance to get a few images from below this iconic structure, it was closed off so this was the best angle available.
You will either love it or hate it but it is amazing when you are close up.

Thanks for looking

Regards Richard

A great angle of this olympic structure... looks like someone has mixed the plans for a helter-skelter and roller coasterWink

This angle gives the effect of a Whirling Dervish. It's definitely dancing. It's the first image of the work that I have found engaging - I love most of Kapoor's work but images that I have previously seen of this have seemed sterile.

Great pov, Richard, and the red contrasts so well with lovely blue sky. Are we going to be impressed with the opening ceremony?

Shows off this structure very well. I can see it from the hill where I walk the dogs every morning, but have never got up close. I'm in the love it camp!

An amazing piece of work, Richard - it looks like a cross between the Pepsi Max at Blackpool and a helter-skelter! Great viewpoint, and having a deep blue sky helps in making it stand out from the background Wink

Excellent point of view Richard, sorry but for me I do not like the sculpture, will come in handy for the broke Government to sell for scrap.

The closest I've got is the viewing window from John Lewis in Westfield Shopping centre!! Very strong graphic shapes from your angle of capture, Richard, and excellent colour contrast.

you 'best angle available' would seem to be the most interesting one. Well done for composing a fantstic shot in a probably very hectic environment.

An extraordinary bit of sculpture/architecture, Richard, making quite a statement at the Olympic venue: like your chosen viewpoint here showing off so well the complicated structure.
I watched a documentary on TV a week or so back describing it's construction......quite fascinating it was too.
