5 in 5 - April 2014 - THE GLASS SUN

                                         Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of
each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes. 


 

 This month I thought I'd share photos taken on a retreat.  I'd gone outside in the sun for a brief break and there are always good photos to be had by the water.  But today I was in London and just last evening I learnt that there was a 'sun' sculpture made of glass in one of the parks.  I didn't know where this was in relation to my meeting, but as luck had it, I discovered it was walking distance.  So I set off full of anticipation and I was not disappointed!  So this month, not photos taken in the sun, but a sun sculpture instead.  I love the unexpected, don't you!
 

I loved how it flowed with the branches of trees


and had wonderful shapes







and even more detail when you looked closer .


And I bet it looks even more amazing at night when it is lit up.


Here is more information about the sculpture and the artist.  If you have a chance, it is well worth a visit.  And there is more of Dale Chihuly's beautiful work to see in the Halcyon Gallery nearby.
