There are times when you sometimes take for granted the beauty of the landscape about you, and it is often when I visit the Yorkshire Sculpture Park that this is brought home to me with real impact.
With such a lovely day forecast I set off for the park early and was walking through the grounds before 9.30am. The December sun was still very low in the sky but was already casting long shadows on the ground.
I decided to make the most of the light and spent the next hour or so wandering about the park, did a circle of the lake taking photographs as I went along. I was testing out my new Pentax k50 (my old one decided to stop working so had to be replaced) and i have been very pleased with the results.
The sky was blue, the moon still out when I arrived, the water on the lake was very tranquil and considering it was the weekend before Christmas the park was relatively quiet. There were wonderful views across the lake with the TV mast at Emley Moor sticking out of the clouds, looking as though it was a Saturn rocket making its ascent.
The Kaws exhibition has finished and the fantastic wooden statues have gone………which is sad, as the area where they stood looks quite barren now.
Below are some of the photos I took on my circular walk yesterday.
