The sun going down on sculptures by the sea.....




We were lucky enough to get back down to Cottesloe on Saturday evening just before the sun went down to take some last shots of  Sculpture by the Sea.. I had heard that 'transparent sea' by WA artist Vaughn Bisschops was particularly fabulous in the sunset so I was pretty keen for that shot..what do you think? I'm pretty happy with it, more so because I took it with a sweet little lense that I bought for my Pentax at the last camera market, I don't think it's actually designed for this type of shot, more for close up work, but it did just fine on this and 'look this way' by NSW artist Ken Unsworth below, and to end off the sculptures for this year WA artist Ayad Alqaragholli's 'habibi' and my favourite of the many, many silhouette shots I took after the sun had disappeared below the horizon. Hope you've enjoyed them as much as I did taking them. Short week this week and next, have a good Tuesday, take care.....

  8. I do like them; particularly the first, it's very dramatic. As to that skeleton, what is Yorick doing all the way in Australia? I knew him well, Horatio....

  18. Pretty amazing! I really like the skeleton and the acrobats(?)! Can't imagine something like this on a Florida beach. Which is too bad.

  22. love your last image with the sunset and the fishermen. We saw Sculptures by the Sea a couple of years ago - very interesting.
    I'm in Bunbury, I thought we were in for a cold miserable day, but the sun is shining now.
    Have a wonderful week.
