This is one of those cases where the camera can not possibly capture what the eyes can see. Just north of Liverpool along Crosby Beach, an installation titled "Another Place" by Antony Gormley has been installed in the Irish Sea since 2005. This work consists of 100 of these life-size cast iron sculptures spread along 3 km of the beach and stretching almost 1 km out to sea! I was there at low tide (as you can tell from by the man in the pic) and can't put into words the impact of these figures all staring in one direction out to sea. I can only imagine what it might be like to spend the day watching them disappear and reappear as the tides change. If you ever get the chance - go there to see them!
