Artist's description:

I took this during my photo shoot with the dancer, Julia griffin, on Crosby Beach near Liverpool. She was just doing a quick costume change and I turned around and two of the one hundred Antony Gormley statues that populate the beach, were perfectly in alignment.

Sometimes you're lucky. I've been back there many times, but I can never quite work out where I took the shot. It's well worth the visit; the statues give the beach a slightly mystical air, all facing out to sea. The artist's message is environmental, but you can put your own interpretation on them. Somewhat romantically, I like to think of them as longing for their ship to return one day.
