The Awakening! (5)

By TyChee    
As a parting shot to this series I wanted to show just how much space a giant needs to sleep. Still missing in this frame are his right foot and his left hand. It was starting to get a little strange out at Hains point so late at night and I was starting to get the feeling that it was time to go while I still had all my equipment in tact. (Both the camera and me) Smile


Off to a day trip to the Kennedy Space Center with the kids. Tomorrow I hope to visit a big cat preserve. They have a special photo tour there.

Thanks for looking. I'll see everyone when I return.

Great to see the whole giant, or at least the full extent of him - the crop works beautifully. Thanks for this series, it's really been Something Else.

Truly amazing. Wonder how long it took for them to position all the different parts of the body in the correct places. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your stay in Florida.

Have just been looking at this awesome series of your giant.....utterly amazing.
I particularly liked the one of his arm with the moonbeam in his hand.
Such a shame he's being moved to another site.
Sorry I didn't comment on all of them, been ofline for a wek, computer was in the PC hospital, but back home all better now, so lots of catching up to do.
Take care,

Fanasic to see the (near) whole sculpture, and it looks surreal amidst its environment.

Absolutely stunning Ty! I've worked my way forward now I am doing the reverse.
Awesome detail even at this distance - goodness knows how much farther back you would need to be for the 'complete' scene.
A wonderful series
