Another Place, Crosby looking across the top of the Wirral to the Clwydian Hills of North Wales. The lighthouse just visible isn’t Perch Rock for a change. It’s at Leasowe a little further up the Wirral coast from New Brighton.

 

Made so many schoolboy errors this morning. Doesn't help that you have only been to the location once in five years and don't know the beach.

 

I found myself chasing the tide along the beach towards Formby as it went out, and dodging the tankers proved difficult, ( apologies to the Captain of the ACL ship, I don't really think you're as thick as arseholes,) and I was down to only two of the statues being submerged.

 

I faffed around so much deciding on lenses/filters that the colour in the clouds had all but gone, my epic 12 minute exposure with the wind farm in the background....well guess who forgot to switch back to manual. Kicked my coffee over again, another 2 shots ruined because I didn't force the tripod far enough in to the sand, lost count of how many times I forgot to put back in bulb mode and walked away looking at my phone and coming back to a completely awesome image of a black screen...even thought the camera had died at first.

 

There was only one person who was acting as thick as arseholes and it certainly wasn't the Captain of the container ship!

14th March 2016 - A photo-stitch of 5 images of Anthoney Gormley's 'Another Place' situated on Crosby beach in Liverpool.

And all the couples, dog walker's and families with children started hurrying back from the beach!

The iron men hard as they are weather the storms and the occasional seagull accident - my feet certainly didn't fair so well and the car blowers dried them nicely on the way home. Rebecca - water - trainers, never a good move!

8th March 2015 - Another try at finding those untouched angles available at Anthony Gormley's 'Another Place'..

These spectacular sculptures by Antony Gormley are on Crosby beach. Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea.

 

The Another Place figures - each one weighing 650 kilos - are made from casts of the artist's own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.

 

Having previously been seen in Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, 'Another Place' is now a permanent feature in the UK, at Crosby Beach.

 

According to Antony Gormley, Another Place harnesses the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man's relationship with nature. He explains: The seaside is a good place to do this. Here time is tested by tide, architecture by the elements and the prevalence of sky seems to question the earth's substance. In this work human life is tested against planetary time. This sculpture exposes to light and time the nakedness of a particular and peculiar body. It is no hero, no ideal, just the industrially reproduced body of a middle-aged man trying to remain standing and trying to breathe, facing a horizon busy with ships moving materials and manufactured things around the planet.

Take a trip to see the Another Place sculptures that stretch almost one kilometre out to sea on Crosby beach.

 

Another Place is a series of 100 cast-iron life-size figures by Antony Gormley based on his own body standing on the beach looking out to sea. According to the sculptor, the sculptures harness the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man’s relationship with nature.

 

Previously sited at Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, Another Place is now a permanent fixture in Liverpool. The sculptures need to be seen to be believed and are an experience not to be missed whilst in Merseyside. However, visitors must be careful not to attempt to walk out to the sculptures furthest away from the shore.

An incoming sea, backed up by a stiff onshore wind gusting to 32 knots, creates choppy conditions in the Mersey estuary as one of Sir Antony Gormley's sculptures stands proud bracing for one of its twice daily tidal onslaughts.

 

The location is Crosby Beach, and the cast-iron statue is just one of the one hundred embedded in the sand around here as part of the installation 'Another Place'.

Another image from the unedited RAW files on my computer from last year. This on the coast at Crosby on the mouth of the Mersey Estuary where there are a number of Antony Gormley statues facing west and out toes towards the "new world". Rather prophetic as we face life after this current pandemic! What will it look like and when we start making some steps back towards "normality". I have done this in mono to accentuate the textures and dreamy nature of the long exposure I used on the day. You can make out the wind turbines out in the Irish Sea and "who knows" what beyond!

Antony Gormely`s "Another Place" sculptures on Crosby beach in Merseyside during a glorious sunset.

The summer of 2018 gave us some lovely sun sets, I couldn't help myself, but I had to visit Crosby Beach almost every evening through that summer.

 

During this time we had Heathland fires to the East, this resulted in some spectacular sunsets.

Been decidedly inspirationally challenged recently, too much Christmas going on I think! But today, en route back from Southport (not a single snap taken there) we stopped off at Crosby, Antony Gormley's Another Place. Not been there before and it is quite amazing, almost surreal. The weather was dramatic but kind but I did mistime the tide, and it was high for most of the visit but that just means I will have to go back!

Macro Mondays - Fingertip(s)

All the info needed for travel is now right at your fingertips.

So mush easier to do in this day and age.

Great theme and hard to shoot your own fingertips.

Happy Macro Monday

located at Crosby Beach in Merseyside, England. Another Place consists of 100 cast iron figures facing towards the sea. Another Place was first exhibited on the beach of Cuxhaven, Germany, in 1997 followed by Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium. It was the subject of much controversy in Merseyside, although many people considered the figures to be beautiful pieces of art, and tourism in the local area increased.

One of the hundred cast iron statues of the artist Antony Gormley's work Another Place on Crosby Beach. This view shows how the metalwork is weathering down in the salty atmosphere.

2015 08 27 221539 Crosby Anthony Gormly Another Place

Another Place is a piece of modern sculpture by Antony Gormley. It consists of 100 cast iron sculptures of the artist's own body, facing towards the sea.

 

After being displayed at several locations in Europe, it has become permanently erected at Crosby Beach in Merseyside England. The work was controversial in the local area due to issues such as possible economic gain or environmental damage from tourism. A meeting on 7 March 2007 by Sefton Council accepted proposals that would allow the sculptures to be kept permanently at Crosby Beach in place of being moved to New York.

26th March 2015 - Another 'different' approach for me in my editing work flow. You take so many shots of your local art installation that you really have to try a new approach now and again...

I am lucky to have these views on my doorstep

Another visit to Crosby Beach tonight, not to capture the Gormley statues, but hoping i got the tide right for this shot, its one i have been wanting to do for a while.

One last photo of Antony Gormley's "Another Place" installation on Crosby beach in Merseyside. I couldn't make my mind up yesterday whether the symmetrical or the off centre composition looked best so here's the centralised shot for comparison. It was taken around sunset. I can't help imagining how different these statues will look in stormy conditions, I should imagine they'll be even more dramatic. For now though, I'm glad I had chance to capture them looking so eerily serene and contemplative. I used a Kenkoo ND1000 filter for this photo.

1st June 2016 - Celebrity Cruises Solstice class cruise ship 'Celebrity Silhouette' sails past one of Anthoney Gormley's 'Iron Men' at Waterloo beach on its way up to Glasgow.

The last one (I promise!) from the "Gormley Sunset" ... taken a few minutes after this.

 

No music on this one, because it should have nothing to disturb the silence ...

 

That magical moment when the sun has finally dipped beneath the horizon and the world seems momentarily becalmed...

 

The last warmth of the sunset playng on the horizon and those few seconds when the birds realise that the day is over and silently take to the air to find somewhere to rest, the only sound, the quiet murmuring of distant ripples on the shore ...

 

I always leave with a feeling of peace and serenity, lost in thought, watching the world turn to darkness around me. Nothing from the real world intrudes or breaks the reverie of half-formed dreams, come to fill the night ...

"Towards a great sadness

We are not always here

We burn in zeal and give wings

To our soul for the blue dream

It means the start of our happiness whilst

It sweetly rises to our soul"

Taken at Formby point.. This is the location of Anthony Gormleys "another place" but today the ironmen were battling the elements

Caught this before the sun had set to the right, these old wooden structures were not visible this time last year

I originally put this on Flickr in colour, but I decided that this photo would look better in monochrome. I was just about to get in my car and leave, when I saw this couple just enjoying the day. I quickly grabbed my camera and took the shot.

  

Another shot from that day last January when the light was so magnificent. A building storm hurling heavy clouds overhead, with occasional blasts of sunshine through gaps in the sky as the sun crawled towards the horizon ...

 

And the Gormleys, standing there, oblivious to it all, lost in thought and time ...

   

Sorry for not visiting ... got a lot on at the moment.
