A chilled November's evening found me down on the expansive sands of St. Ives Bay. Apart from a surfer way out in the rollers, the beach was mine. By watching the clouds as the afternoon wore on, I could see it was going to be a good sundown. So I got busy with my settings and filters and quickly became absorbed in trying to gain a balance in my composition and bring the image together in my viewfinder. So when a voice right next to me said "It's beautiful isn't it?" I almost jumped out of my skin! It was the surfer who had, unseen by me, come out of the sea. She laughed at my startled expression and then apologised. In turn I asked her if she wouldn't mind standing in my shot?
She agreed and took direction like a professional. I positioned her so her reflection was more noticeable than her actual form, and to hold her board to give her 'wings'. I was thinking of Anthony Gormley's northern masterpiece and so, in deference, I named this image 'Angel of Godrevy'.
This picture would be ideally suited to reproduction as an unframed acrylic glass artwork, where the 'chilled warmth' and detailed textures would come be enhanced. The drop down menu below. lists such a purchase option in a range of sizes, that come with 2mm thick gallery glass. However, there are 'deeper' 4mm, and even 6mm depths available that would add extra depth to the finished artwork.
