“Another Place” is an amazing piece of sculpture which stands on Crosby beach, near Liverpool. It was made by Antony Gormley who is more famous for his “Angel of The North” which stands on a hill near Newcastle upon Tyne. “Another Place” consists of 100 cast iron figures which look out towards the sea. The work is very evocative, but it is impossible to record 100 widely spaced statues in one photograph, so I have tried to capture the mood of the sculpture while including only a few. The presence of many visitors on the beach enhance the bizarre effect of this incredible creation.
Perhaps he was thinking of using one of those bicycles to go to "another place".

It's not just the art work which is interesting. Myriads of lugworm casts lie on the beach.
On this day there were also many jellyfish.
