photoblog image The Angel of the North Postcard

The Angel of the North Postcard

2009 Retrospective - I had a number of images I took last year that I would have liked to have posted on SC but time didn't allow.  For the time being I am posting a number of these, in no particular order, which I hope you will enjoy.

On 9th.September last year I posted this collage http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/The_Angel_Of_The_North_/ of this well known sculpture alongside the A1 in Northern England.  I particularly liked this image so here it is set up as a postcard.

Well presented as a postcard, Brian. I think we'd all buy it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, shall I put you all down for a dozen each smile
Great postcard! I love the Angel.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Bill.
An excellent photograph of this fabulous Gormley icon brian. Looks like it is protecting the people beneath.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, I suppose protection is one of the things angels are all about.
Great image Brian. Worthy of post carding!!
Cheers
Rob

Better than most of the postcards I've purchased on my travels
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, I shall take that as a compliment.
Quite impressive Brian. I really like your presentation!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
Very good shot - I know that it is difficult to get a good position on that huge object, and you've managed it really well!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. I did a posting last year befor you joined that you might enjoy at http://brianaw.shutterchance.com/photoblog/The_Angel_Of_The_North_/
From a great POV..Well done Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
I never realised it was so big. The people look tiny.
Brian Walbey: I hadn't realised just how big it is either Linda.
Nicely framed Brian ... richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard, by the way my posting on New years Eve was in response to a comment from you during last year, I would be interested in your opinion.
Well done Brian, it is dificult to photo this and get it all in while still showing off its size, te group help here
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek, the other problem was being able to avoid getting too many people in.
I love this sculpture and every time we go that far north I have to go and see it, even if it means a diversion. It is exciting, brave, spectacular and beautiful and your picture does it justice.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, it was certainly the highlight on our journey to Northumberland.

Now I missed this on both the way up and the way home; I went through the Tyne Tunnel to avoid the traffic queues on the A!. One day I'll see it for real. Your image gives me all I need for now.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, it's good to hear you got back o.k. We used the Tyne Tunnel on the way back to avoid traffic also.
This is really big. It's good you have some people too in the image.
Brian Walbey: The people give the sense of scale Paul. Mind you, I suspect it is impossible to get a picture of this without other people being there.
