This is one of the last landscape photos I took before my back took a turn for the worse and I decided that I was going to change direction and take up studio based photography. I became a big fan of Anthony Gormley after seeing his Syphon art exhibit in manchester art gallery which was made of 100,000 small washers welded together to make a human form, so I really fancied taking a photo of "Another Place" his amazing installation in Crosby. Taking this image was a nightmare though because the first time I went I was told you had to get on the beach at Formby so went there and it was wrong info, then I went to crosby and there was major roadworks going into the town so I never got there, then there was no parking( man that place is popular!) and then a couple of time the tide had just come in. Finally, everything fell together and I took this image and some more.Had to wait a few hours for the sun to start to go down though but was worth it.
