Jaume Plensa

Over the winter this sculpture by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa appeared on the newly refurbished battlements by the quay in Antibes. It's a fantastic structure which I've been admiring and wanting to photograph all summer.

I've been waiting 2 months to be around when the moon was full and get a shot with the sculpture lit up and when it's at its most impressive.

While I was waiting I got a couple of shots of this yacht in the moonlight which I quite like.

  1. Looks so much better there, I saw it at an exhibition in Chatsworth park a couple of years ago. Great to see it has a good home. love the second shot of the sculpture, it's a very complex work. As you move round it it changes form.

  2. Interesting work - it looks very good in that spot against the blue sky. I love that moonlit boat too, and the silver path to the moon.

  3. Adrian, I hadn't realised this had been a traveling work. I just hope it stays here as it really is a fantastic setting for it and it attracts a lot of attention.

    Thanks John and Jenny for the nice comments.

  4. It seems very at home there, looking out to sea. Lovely shots Gaz.
