52 Trees – Week seven

Henry Moore sculpture, with trees, Yorkshire Sculpture Park

I always feel it’s a bit of a cheat to photograph other people’s artwork – like all the hard work’s been done for you.  The only time it becomes satisfying is when you can add something more to the original.  I loved the subtle colours in this Henry Moore sculpture in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, particularly the warm bronzy red patch in the bottom curve, and then I noticed how the autumn trees in the distance picked up and reflected the sculpture’s colours.  Moore’s beautiful stone curves, and his trademark ‘window’, became a wonderful frame for the trees.
