We have just returned from a trip to the north of England, which is why I’ve been very quiet for a while. Amongst other things, we paid a visit to the Angel of the North, the Antony Gormley sculpture near Gateshead. I’ve seen it many times when driving along the A1, but never actually been up close before.
It turned out to be the perfect day and time, as the winter sun was just slipping down behind the sculpture.
Apparently it was, and still is, a controversial piece, but I think it looks incredibly beautiful, perched up on its hill, watching over the landscape.
