Estate Sculpture

By TornadoTys
This sculpture is on a new housing development not far from me. I have often seen it illuminated in the twilight and was planning on photographing it in the future.

This striking piece of artwork, which has been named “Crowned Stag” by artist Matthew Lane Sanderson, depicts the reflection of a stag under a tree.

It has been hand crafted from zinc-coated steel and is set on a crown base, reflecting the heritage of the site, which was a deer park owned by King Henry VIII as part of his Tudor Palace and estate parkland.

On this occasion I was passing by and noticed the blue hour sky and decided this was an ideal opportunity not to miss !
I not photographed any thing like this before, so not sure about composition, tones, etc

Hope you guys like the editing

A perfect time to capture this beautiful sculpture. The "reflection" type of sculpture reminds me of some that I have seen on this site recently but I can't remember who took them.
