From the other side . . .

By TrevBatWCC    
Following on from my previous upload , this is the view from the other side, with some closer looks in the versions. Had some interesting and amusing suggestions as to what it might be! Grin
Weymouth has been famous for its sand sculptures for over 95 years. Fred Darrington began sculpting sand here just after the First World War in the early 1920s. He passed away in 2002 at the age of 91, but his grandson Mark Anderson continued following in his footsteps. These small sculptures were originally constructed on the open sands, but this structure has since been added.
Though I didn't get to visit, there is also now the large extensive Sandworld Sculpture Park, located at the other end of Weymouth, which exhibits many huge sculptures, and was founded by local businessman David Hicks and Mark, opening in 2011.

Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw, tweaked in Nik Collection's Viveza 2 and Photoshop Elements 14.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging Smile
