Sony NEX C3, taken a stones throw from where I grew up
I looks like the ironman got photo-bombed in the third photo
Second one is really cool. Monolithic, almost.
I like #1 (minus the shadows created visible in the sand)
Gonna assume number 3 was done that way.
yes...number three was staged....i actually thought i managed to not get the shadows...my fault for not checking that one
These sculptures are great subjects for photography. I could see myself doing a whole series of photographs at light and weather conditions. If I were anywhere near Liverpool, of course
I think the third one is funny but it probably works best to shoot them in complete isolation to emphasise their exposure and monolithic qualities.
jaf...they change so much depending on the sunshine, the weather and even the tide...each one is the same cast of the sculptor but each one is different depending on where they are sited..some are fully in view, some are buried waist or even chest deep in the sand....plus the ones further out at sea have barnacles and sea life growing on them...it's a fabulous place to spend time
Kudos to the local council for giving planning to do this. Many places probably wouldn't.
Perhaps we could look forward to more iron men photos from you, Dave?
They were meant to be going to New York next, but the council did some deal with Gormley to keep them

there was an independent group that lobbied the council to have them stay there...i love them...have done since the first time i saw them, and every time i spend time there there are always a lot of people taking a real interest in the statues, and the council have got the good sense since they were allowed to stay to use them as an asset for the local area....as i said in my reply earlier, they are a seriously moving and intriguing work of public art....each one truly is different depending where they are placed, we were there twice yesterday and in the bright sunshine and again in the evening when the sun was getting very low in the sky over the statues it was an entirely different landscape
