To treat ourselves at the end of the week, we took ourselves off once more to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. It's a relaxing park to wonder around, usually quite quiet during the weekdays and we've never been in Autumn before.
It does have a larger than usual audience at the moment. On a wet, grey day, the car park, as we arrived was almost full. Now it could have been because it was lunchtime but to be honest it's these red ceramic poppies which are to blame.
For anyone who didn't manage to see them in London, there's a display entitled 'The Wave' which YSP are showing. And yes it's certainly an interesting display. The colour alone makes it stand out. The blood red poppies against the green scenery are a visual dream.
If it gave one advantage, it was that the rest of the park was mostly free from people. We had a walk around the lake largely to ourselves, which made the silence feel even more tranquil. Just us and nature.
I had my camera with me - of course - and I wanted to try out the AV setting and play around with shallow depths of field and Bokeh.
However I also managed to snap some arty shots too
And here I am sitting on (or is that within?) a piece of art
I think the poppy display is on until January. If it's your thing, I'd certainly recommend it. Just make sure you take a camera.
