Sculpture by the Lakes is a landscaped park in Dorset, owned by Simon Gudgeon, who is a well known British contemporary sculptor. This park provides a showcase for his work.
Last Saturday I was able to spend the afternoon there with Dee, and our friends Susanne and Ed. I did, of course, try to take a few photographs. The weather was cold and dry, but I still found it quite difficult to produce the quality of photograph that I wanted. I’m going to put it down to the cold freezing my poor old brain. Still, it was a useful opportunity to, hopefully, learn from my mistakes.
I haven’t been able to find time to post, or visit blogs recently. I’ve got a little time available today so I thought that I would post a few photos from that afternoon, even though I wish they were better. Any artistic value in these images should, of course, be attributed to Simon Gudgeon and his wife, Monique, who is responsible for the gardens in which the Sculptures are set.
Here is a ‘gallery’, best viewed as a slide show, by clicking on the first image and then using the carousel. I hope that these images may inspire you to visit Sculpture by the Lakes.
A visit to the Sculpture by the Lakes site will provide details of this excellent Sculpture Park as well as some images which are much better than mine. I’m looking forward to revisiting the park soon, to try to improve on these shots.
