Last week was Erica’s birthday and so we thought we’d take advantage of some nice weather and make a trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It’s only 45 minutes drive from us so it’s kind of strange that we’ve never been before, but having just booked Louise and Alex’s 2012 wedding there we thought it would be nice to have a day out and see it. I imagine that you’re expecting to see lots of photos of sculptures, and if that’s the case then this blog post may disappoint. As much as I like sculptures, there’s something about taking photos of just a sculpture that doesn’t really do much for me…I think they’re best enjoyed in person in 3-d, and not by looking at a photograph of them. Overall it was nice to be out and about and as spring is coming on more and more each day I wanted to take a few photos to document this time of year and capture the great light we had. As you’ll see, one of the sculptures does feature in a couple of shots! After a lovely day we’re really looking forward to shooting a wedding there next year.
I liked the way the light was coming through this sculpture. You can see the whole sculpture in one of the photos below.
If you look closely at the bottom right of the photo, you can see a couple of sneaky Canadian geese creeping into the shot…like they didn’t know what they were up to!
At first I wondered if the windows being dirty would ruin the shot but then I think I actually quite like how some of the panes are a bit misty and some are quite clear…makes the view through the windows look like patchwork!
No sneaky Canadian geese on this one (as far as I can tell!)
