This is the final photo I took of Antony Gormley's sculpture "Another Place" - the Iron Men on Crosby beach, Merseyside

The sculpture consists of 100 cast iron figures which face out to sea, spread over a 2 mile (3.2 km) stretch of the beach. Each figure is 189 cm tall (nearly 6 feet 2½ inches) and weighs around 650 kg (over 1400 lb).
In common with most of Gormley's work, the figures are cast replicas of the artist's own body. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea. The figures were cast at two foundries, Hargreaves Foundry in Halifax, West Yorkshire and Joseph and Jesse Siddons Foundry in West Bromwich. - Info - Wikipedia
(Antony Gormley is also famous for the "Angel of the North" sculpture near Gateshead, Tyneside).

The information boards up and down the beach say that 'your' interpretation of the work will depend upon the weather conditions, the time of day, and whether the tide is high or low. I was there all day and saw both tides, and a fabulous sunset, and came away profoundly moved.

"Another Place harnesses the ebb and flow of the tide to explore man’s relationship with nature." Antony Gormley says: “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, 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.”

Went to Crosby, Merseyside recently (mostly to see blues singer/songwriter Ian Parker, who was playing in the evening, but made a day of it by also shooting at Antony Gormley's sculpture "Another Place" - the iron men on Crosby beach)

Possibly the last one!

There will be more to come from this shoot - the information boards up and down the beach say that 'your' interpretation of the work will depend upon the weather conditions, the time of day, and whether the tide is high or low. I was there all day and saw both tides, and a fabulous sunset, so the photos in the series will try to reflect the various moods
