'Still Water'

By TrevBatWCC    
Just over to the left of where I was stood when I shot the image in my previous upload of Marble Arch is this sculpture entitled 'Still Water'. The bronze horse's head was created by Nic Fiddian-Green, and was commissioned to replace an earlier and similar, but slightly smaller, work, 'Horse at Water'. It stands at 10 metres (33 feet) high and is the largest free-standing bronze sculpture in London. It was installed on 24th August 2011.

Raw image 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

fortunate to get the guy sitting on the plinth as it gives good scale to this fine bronze Trev

That is a very impressive sculpture Trev, I agree with Graham, the guy on the bench puts things into perspective.

The inclusion of the chap on the plinth gives a good sense of scale to this excellent capture, Trev.

It's a rather impressive statue, isn't it? I love the way you've made it into a work of art of your own. Smile

You can take a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. An amazing sculpture, well taken.

Amazing, a gigantic horse's head balancing on its chin, a real feat, but a great effect.
