We were at a talk given by a representative from the Woodland Trust recently, and he showed a slide of this sculpture. So the next day we went and found it.
It resides in Low Burnhall Woods, just west of Durham. (For northerners, it's close to the Honest Lawyer pub, near the site of the old **** of the North).
It sits on a (steep, slippery) ridge, and it's not easy to get a decent angle. But I like the way grass is growing up through it, Nature is reclaiming her own.
Two different Lensbaby shots, exploring different formats. These were always going to be b&w, I didn't even save processed colour versions.
There is a theme to this week's uploads, though it may not be apparent...
Thanks for looking,
