Sculptures overlooking the Hauraki Gulf

My friend Dawn and I went to see an exhibition of over 100 original works of NZ contemporary art.

What a spectacular view we had from the cliff-top site of Fort Takapuna overlooking the Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto Island.

What amuses me with the people in this photo - the lady is looking at the sculptures, while the man is more interested in the view...

This display was made by Paul Dibble and each of these 2050mm bronze figures were for sale for NZ$48,000.00 each.

No, I didn't buy any...

Hello Janice, Interesting to see the way the lady is standing, with her hands on her hips, similar to the scultpure ! And an interesting photo to look at.. as it tells a story, especially with that view. It was a great day out my friend.

Cheers Dawn.

Hi Janice,
An interesting presentation of these modern sculptures at the seaside. Interesting also is the beautiful scenery around and that's why you have two different opinion's from the two persons in the shot!
Nice back lighting and good management in exposure.
Nice colors and a neat presentation.
My best wishes for the New Year.
